The NHAND has decided to make all of the information on this website accessible to members and non-members.  Some pages we link to, however, may require membership in the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

Academy membership is highly encouraged for additional access to products and services designed to help nutrition professionals develop their skills, advance their careers, and achieve their professional goals.  Many of us find the free CEU credits, networking and dietetic practice group resources that come with membership to be a valuable resource.

If you know of additional links we should add, or find that a link is no longer valid, please let us know. Put “NHDA website link” in the subject line of your email and send a message with the relevant information to

MNT Reimbursement

Medical Nutrition Therapy is an essential component of comprehensive health care. Individuals with a variety of conditions and illnesses can improve their health and quality of life by receiving medical nutrition therapy. As a member of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, you have access to a number of MNT related resources:

The Academy’s Medicare MNT contains information about becoming a Medicare provider, Medicare billing requirements, diabetes resources, a physician fee schedule and information on CMS’s recent decisions on intensive behavioral counseling for cardiovascular disease and obesity. This page also contains a direct link to the MNT newsletter.

The Academy’s Coding, Coverage and Compliance page contains news and event updates related to coverage, tools to assist practice management and some basic information. Review the Billing Resource for Registered Dietitians for an excellent guide that covers many facets of billing for nutrition services. This document will also provide guidance on Medicare billing as well as private practice billing.
