Medical Nutrition Therapy

At Thompson Health we are dedicated to providing exceptional quality, interdisciplinary care and education for medical nutrition therapy (MNT), to promote and support the health and well-being of the community.

Thompson's MNT program provides in-person and telemedicine outpatient visits to those with diabetes and chronic renal failure.

Individuals with diabetes and chronic renal failure may be referred by their Primary Care Provider (PCP) for a medical nutrition therapy consultation.

  • Medicare and most insurances will cover 3 hours when initially (first year) diagnosed with diabetes mellitus (DM).
  • One year after diagnosis, Medicare and most insurances will cover 2 hours per year for follow-up visits.
  • Medicare and most insurances will cover medical nutrition therapy for patients with chronic renal failure that have a GRR of 13-50, when not on dialysis.
