A lot of employee health insurance policies will cover sessions with a Registered Dietitian. Check your group health plan or health spending account, as each insurance company and health spending account has its own policy. If you have a health spending account through Blue Cross, you can get reimbursed for your Registered Dietitian services. Check to see what your maximum coverage is per year for Registered Dietitian services. We will provide you with a receipt that includes a Registered Dietitian practice permit number, the date of your sessions, and the description of the services provided. We do not do direct billing.
If you are not covered by your group health plan and do not have a health spending account, Registered Dietitians are categorized as an "Authorized Medical Practitioner" in the province of Alberta. This means that you can claim your expenses from seeing a Registered Dietitian on your annual tax return to receive non-refundable tax credits. We will provide you with a receipt. (Only sessions with a Registered Dietitian are categorized as an "Authorized Medical Practitioner", so make sure you are seeing a Registered Dietitian and not a Nutritionist if you plan on claiming your expenses.)
