Many extended health care plans cover Registered Dietitian services. Contact your extended health care provider to see if they cover these services or if your plan includes an “expense account” that can be used to cover these services from registered health care providers. We do not do direct billing, however, we will provide you with a receipt that can be submitted to your provider for reimbursement. Dietitian services may also be claimed as a medical expense on your income tax.
We also accept Autism Funding (AFU) for children over 6 years old. We are not covered by MSP.

COVID 19 VIRTUAL CONSULTATIONS
We will only be offering virtual consultations at this time as we do our best to keep everyone safe. We know it can be hard to find a quiet 60-90 minutes for a video call with kids at home, so we’ve broken up the assessment so there’s decreased face time (more time spent before/after by the Dietitian), but with the same quality of assessment and recommendations. This will entail:
Family to complete written assessment online prior to appointment. Dietitian will review completed assessment prior to appointment.
30 minute video call with Dietitian to better understand family’s nutrition concerns, clarify more details of assessment, and begin to generate recommendations.
Dietitian will then develop personalized recommendations that will be emailed to family.
Credit card information will be taken over the phone to process payment and receipt will be emailed to family.
Initial Assessment: $175 reduced rate during COVID19 as we offer virtual consultations
Follow-Up: $115 reduced rate during COVID19 as we offer virtual consultations
