Are Registered Dietitian services covered by health benefits?
YES! Registered Dietitians are health care professionals and almost all insurance companies in Ontario can reimburse one-on-one nutrition counselling services. Check with your employer to determine if they have included this benefit in their insurance package. In addition, one-on-one nutrition counselling services with a Registered Dietitian are exempt from HST. Keep your receipt from each appointment as you may qualify for a non-refundable tax credit from the government when you file your taxes (based on your income tax bracket).

- Cheque (made out to Fuel Up Nutrition)
