Insurance Plan Information

Each insurance plan will vary in coverage for Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT). Coverage will be different, even within the same insurance company from plan to plan, and from state to state. You should contact your insurance company, to determine what is covered. Be sure to check your deductibles. Katherine Shaw is a participating provider with Medicare, John Deere, Cigna And United Health Care (this does not necessarily mean that your visit will be covered).

Many insurances consider Diabetes Self-Management Education(DSME) and Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) separate things. Real Life Nutrition is now offering a Real Diabetes Management Program (DSMT). Medicare, Aetna, United Healthcare, and Cigna are currently covered for some plans.
