The initial nutrition session is typically a one hour session.  Follow up sessions range from 30 minutes to one hour.  During your appointment you’ll learn how to improve your diet and meet your nutrition goals.

Please note that a physician referral that includes a medical diagnosis is needed to schedule an appointment for Medical Nutrition Therapy.  You can ask your physician to fax the referral to 507-646-1392.

Does Insurance Cover MNT?

Many insurance plans will cover your visit to see a registered dietitian. If your insurance company does not, be sure to request this benefit. Medicare allows a certain number of visits for people with diabetes or end-stage renal disease. Check with your provider to determine if you are eligible to see a registered dietitian under Medicare.
