Nutrition Services

Manet's licensed registered dietitian provides nutrition support for many chronic health conditions. Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is a reimbursed/covered service for Medicare patients who have diabetes or renal disease, and a covered service for most all other insurances as long as the diagnosis has a nutritional component, such as high cholesterol, eating disorders, obesity, GI issues like GERD, IBS, celiac disease and food allergies. Medicare will also cover Intensive Behavioral Therapy (IBT) for people with BMI >30. All Medicare services require orders from your primary care provider.
