Nutrition Services Payment
The Georgia Academy and the Academy want to empower dietitians to be paid for providing medical nutrition therapy (MNT). Advocating for both coverage of, and reimbursement (payment) for, nutrition services provided by a licensed dietitian can help elevate the profession of dietetics and make the contribution of dietitians more visible to the healthcare industry. As more dietitians become credentialed and bill for services, dietetics will gain greater recognition as a vital and valuable part of healthcare and further improve access to MNT for patients.
The Academy has excellent resources that provide background information for getting started with receiving payment for nutrition services within a variety of clinical settings. The Georgia Academy's Nutrition Services Payment Specialist, Sue Tocher, can provide additional support for getting started within the state of Georgia.
