How can your program help me?
We can evaluate your current eating patterns and make suggestions for buying foods and meal planning to help you meet your goals. After that, we provide ongoing support as needed.

Will I have to give up my favorite foods?
No. Some changes are necessary but we will work with you to achieve long-term success.

How do I schedule an appointment?
You must be referred by your healthcare provider to meet with a dietitian. 

Will my insurance pay for this program?
Many insurance plans and MaineCare cover medical nutrition therapy for nutrition-related medical conditions. Please check with your insurance carrier to see if you have this coverage for your diagnosis. Medicare covers medical nutritional therapy for diabetes and renal (kidney) disease only.

For an appointment or to enroll in our education classes, ask your doctor for a referral. You can contact us at (207) 777-8625 to learn more about Medical Nutrition Therapy.
