Will my medical aid cover Dietitian services?
Natascha Olivier - Registered Dietitian is a cash practice, meaining that you pay Natascha directly after your appointment, and then claim back from your medical aid. Most medical aids will refund you from your medical savings fund, but if you don't have medical savings (as with a hospital plan) it is unlikely that they will refund you.
The amount refunded varies from one medical aid to the next, please give us a call or send an email and we'll give you the treatment codes so that you can check with your specific medical aid.
Can I claim my Discovery maternity benefits through you?
Members of the Discovery medical aid can apply for a maternity benefit. This benefit entitles them to claim back a certain amount for one lactation consult AND one nutrition consult during the first 2 years of their child's life. Being a dietitian and lactation consultant, I can assist you with both of these consultations.
