What is MNT?
Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) is nutrition counseling performed by a registered dietitian nutritionist for a medical diagnosis. WellFamily Nutrition focuses on pediatric patients for MNT. All MNT appointments must be done face-to-face with the patient (your child) present.
Parents or pediatricians can refer patients to WellFamily. Simply call the referral line at 401-326-2526 and leave a detailed message. Someone will return your phone call to schedule your appointment.
The First Visit
A new place can be scary for anyone, but especially for children, who probably think they've done something wrong. We want to make your family feel comfortable. We are parents, just like you, and we understand the daily struggle. The WellFamily Nutrition office is professional, yet relaxed. There are toys, puzzles, books, and crayons to make your child feel safe and welcome. You can expect professional care and services, in a family-friendly environment. The first visit usually lasts 90 minutes and your dietitian will spend time getting to know your family and hone in on your priorities and solutions. Together, you will set achievable goals and design strategies to achieve them. Most patients can expect a follow up appointment 2 weeks after the initial visit.
MNT is covered by most insurance companies in Rhode Island. WellFamily Nutrition accepts BCBS, NHP, UHC, UHC RiteCare and Tufts Commercial. For all other insurance companies, we can provide a superbill to submit to your insurance company for full or partial reimbursement of services. For insurance companies other than BCBS, NHP and Tufts, fees are paid by the patient to WellFamily and the patient is responsible for filing the insurance claim.
