Diabetes Dietetic Practice Group Delegate Podcast

Jan 11, 2021

Jason Roberts is new Reimbursement Chair for the Diabetes Dietetic Practice Group (Diabetes DPG) and helps Registered Dietitians in our DPG with resources and reimbursement.  His role with Diabetes DPG drives what and how we are getting paid, as well as care, increasing access for patients to see a Registered Dietitian for medical nutrition therapy.

Jason discusses resources for reimbursement, including the MNT Provider, a monthly newsletter specifically tailored for registered dietitian nutritionists. The MNT Provider includes articles on topics such as billing, coding and coverage, CMS updates and releases, practice and business management, health care reform, Medicare, Medicaid and private insurance reimbursement, and is free to Academy members. Other resources are available at the Diabetes DPG website under professional resources, then payment.
