Support the Medical Nutrition Therapy Act

NCA supports the Medical Nutrition Therapy Act and encourages YOU to as well!

Write, call or email your Congressional leaders to co-sponsor and support the passage of this important Bill that will amend “…the Social Security Act to provide Medicare Part B coverage of outpatient MNT for prediabetes, obesity, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, malnutrition, eating disorders, cancer, celiac disease, HIV/AIDS and any other disease or condition causing unintentional weight loss, with authority granted to the Secretary of Health to include other diseases based on medical necessity. It also authorizes nurse practitioners, physician’s assistants, clinical nurse specialists and psychologists to refer patients for MNT.”
