Nutritional counseling may be just the right solution

Tired of the weight roller coaster? Tired of trying the latest fad diet? Just tired of being tired? We hear you. Proper nutrition – a stable, consistent approach to it – is essential for peak body performance and preventing health concerns.

Whether you're looking to lose weight, want to eat smarter, or battling an eating disorder, you and your dependents have access to nutritional counseling benefits. The first four visits are covered in full, meaning that you pay nothing out of pocket for these services. After your fourth visit, additional visits are paid according to your “office visits” benefit. See your member materials for your plan's benefits.

Why nutritional counseling?

We encourage you to fully understand and use your health plan benefits. When you access nutritional counseling services, you'll benefit from:

  • A personalized plan. You'll work with a nutrition counselor to develop a plan that works from where you are. Your needs will be thoroughly assessed and analyzed to develop a plan and pace that's right for you.
  • A healthier you. Proper nutrition and appropriate exercise will provide you enough energy to make it through each day. Without a proper diet and exercise level, you're at risk for health concerns.
  • Knowledge of foods that aren't scary and that taste good. Good nutrition isn't limited to bland, boring veggies. When you work with a nutrition counselor, you'll learn that there are foods that are not only good for you, but also taste good.
