The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics advocates for expanded nutritional coverage under Medicare
Date:12/18/2011

ssed clearly meets the requirements of an NCD. Moreover, RDs are the most qualified professionals to deliver the necessary nutrition education and MNT services for prevention, wellness, and disease management. By expanding services under MNT, CMS has the opportunity to play a major role in improving the quality of care provided to elderly and disabled persons who fall into the Medicare population.

The article is "The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics National Coverage Determination Formal Request," by Prashanthi Rao Raman, Esq, MPH, and Erica Gradwell, MS, RD, in the Journal of the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, Volume 112, Issue 1 (January 2012) published by Elsevier.

In an accompanying podcast Ms. Schofield, Ms. Blankenship, and Ms. Gradwell discuss the NCD process undertaken by the Academy and share insights about its potential impact on healthcare and the role of the registered dietitian. The podcast is available at http://andjrnl.org/content/podcast.
