Are Registered Dietitian Services covered by my extended health plan?

healthclaimformAlthough MSP does not cover registered dietitians, many employer paid extended health plans do.  Check with your health benefits provider as many plans include coverage for Registered Dietitian services.  

RD versus Nutritionist?

deree1Registered Dietitians have completed a 4 year university degree, a one year internship and a nationwide exam. We are trained to work in the treatment and prevention of disease using evidence-based treatment plans and are regulated under the Health Professionals Act.

Anyone can call themselves a Nutritionist, it is an unregulated term in Canada and these individuals have no set qualifications or nutrition education. Registered Holistic NutritionistTM are individuals trained in a 1 year program, they are not regulated by a governing body and they are not clinically trained to treat health conditions.

You can check whether someone is a qualified nutrition professional by contacting Dietitians of Canada or BC College of Dietitians to obtain a list of Registered Dietitians in your area.
