Other Options

Clients with a Health Savings Account (HSA) or a Flexible Savings Account (FSA) may cover our nutrition visits. Because TD Wellness does not have access to those plans, we ask clients to contact their HSA/FSA to determine if nutrition consults with us will be covered. Those debit or credit card accounts can be used for payment for each visit. Further details are explained in our Policy and Payment Form required for each visit.

If we are not an in-network provider for your plan, we will provide each client with a reimbursement form (Superbill) for each visit, which will contain all the necessary procedure and diagnostic codes for reimbursement.

Dietician vs. Nutritionist – What’s the Difference?

Often times I get asked what is the difference between a dietitian and a nutritionist. The answer – A LOT!!! A registered dietitian nutritionist is a nutritionist and obtains their registration through a rigorous and fiercely competitive master’s level education program that includes a 1200 hour internship. These programs and internships are nationally accredited by ACEND (Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics).

After completion of the dietetic program and internship, the dietitian must also take a national board examination to be credentialed by CRD (Commission for Dietetic Registration), and depending on the state, they are also required to obtain a state license and maintain 15 continuing education hours yearly. In comparison, a nutritionist could be anyone with no formal training other than maybe a college degree (not in nutrition or food sciences), or someone that obtained a non-credentialed certification online. So, if you see RD or RDN after a nutritionist.
