Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist?

A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) is an individual who is a food and nutrition expert who has met rigorous criteria to earn the RDN Credential.  RDN’s need to complete a minimum of a bachelor’s degree at a US regionally accredited university and course work approved by the Accreditation Council for Education in Nutrition and Dietetics (ACEND).  They are also responsible to complete an ACEND-accredited supervised practice program consisting of 1,200+ hours in various health-care facility settings. The final step in the process to becoming an RDN involves an extremely difficult national examination administered by the Commission on Dietetic Registration.  RDN’s study a variety of subjects ranging from food and nutrition sciences, business economics, computer science, culinary arts, biochemistry, physiology, microbiology, anatomy, and chemistry.

What is a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist?

Altitude Nutrition and Exercise Consulting works with most major insurances.  However, in the event that we do not accept your insurance, you can pay us directly and you will then be provided a document known as a superbill.  You can send this superbill to your insurance company in the mail for reimbursement of the RDN services provided to you. It is important to note that not all insurance plans cover RDN services, so it is important to contact your insurance provider prior to your first appointment.
