Health Insurance Coverage

Many extended health insurance plans cover nutrition counselling by a Registered Dietitian (RD). In the province of BC, Registered Dietitians are classified as an “authorized medical practitioner”.

If your plan does not cover the services of a Dietitian, save your receipt for a non-refundable tax credit.

The following insurance companies/programs may offer coverage of up to $1000 annually for Dietitian services:

    • Blue Cross
    • Chambers of Commerce Group
    • Clarica
    • Great West Life Assurance
    • Green Shield Canada
    • Industrial Alliance
    • Liberty Health

  • Manulife Financial
  • Medavie Blue Cross
  • Otip Raeo
  • Sun Life

Check your plan to see what is covered for you.
