Note: Dietitian services are covered under many extended health care benefit plans. If your plan does not cover dietitian services, it is recommended you make a request with your HR manager to add dietitian services, because oftentimes the group health insurance company offers dietitian services but the company does not choose them as an option.
Some health centres and physician offices provide dietitian services.
