Medicare and Medicaid Decide to Cover Nutritional Services

Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services have decided to cover nutritional counseling for obese people. This means that patients will not have to cover the entire cost of the counseling out of pocket, as it will be covered by Medicare and Medicaid. This is also good news for dietitians because the demand for dietitians in hospital clinics and doctors' offices will increase thereby allowing more people to receive dietetics services and increasing the job availability.
