Medical Nutritional Therapy

The prevalence of chronic, inactivity-related diseases is on the rise.

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, approximately one in two people in the U.S. has at least one chronic health condition-such as heart disease, cancer, hypertension, diabetes or obesity-and one in four adults has two or more chronic conditions.

As a health plan, we are committed to empowering our members to adopt and sustain healthy lifestyle behaviors that prevent, mitigate and even reverse chronic diseases.

Medical Nutritional Therapy (MNT) can help you better manage certain conditions through dietary counseling and changes to your eating habits.

Our plan provides you with an opportunity to have unlimited visits to see a registered dietician or other qualified nutrition specialist at no cost to you!

Nutritional counseling can help with all of the following conditions:
