Carson Tahoe Health employs credentialed Registered Dietitian Nutritionists who provide evidence-based nutrition services. We help prevent, delay, or manage diseases and medical conditions through nutrition education and medical nutrition therapy. Medical nutrition therapy is the management of medical conditions through nutritional intervention.

Nutrition counseling may be covered as a benefit by your insurance company, though it may require preauthorization. Our scheduling department will work with you to determine whether nutrition care services will be covered. You may be required to self-pay for your nutrition appointment if your insurance does not cover nutrition education or medical nutrition therapy.
