Frequently Asked Questions

Is Dietitian Consult Covered by Extended Health?

Private practice dietitians are not covered by MSP.  However, many extended health benefit plans and insurance providers will cover a portion or all of the services provided by a Registered Dietitian (RD). Please confirm with your plan provider your maximum yearly and visit allowance.

Furthermore, registered dietitians are authorized medical practitioners recognized by the Canada Revenue Agency.  If you pay out of pocket for your dietitian services, you can claim these expenses as medical expense for tax credit purposes.
