Medical Foods, Medical Nutrition Therapy & the Insurance Gap

The role that oral nutrition and tube feeding supplements play in preventive nutritional care of at-risk populations is well-known and well-documented. Despite evidence that medical nutrition therapy and the use of ONS/TF supplements can prevent malnutrition, nutritional deficiencies, and malnutrition associated complications, a gap in insurance coverage still exists. This webinar will review academic literature findings on the use of ONS and TF to prevent further disease and malnutrition, examine the current state of insurance coverage for MNT, and explore the role of the RD in effecting change in the insurance structure.
