Letter of Support for the Medical Nutrition Therapy Act

June 16, 2020

To: The Honorable Frank Pallone, The Honorable Richard Neal, The Honorable Greg Walden, and The Honorable Kevin Brady

"Current law only allows Medicare Part B to cover MNT services for renal disease and diabetes, leaving millions of seniors without access to comprehensive care. The Medical Nutrition Therapy Act of 2020 would expand Medicare Part B MNT coverage to include prediabetes, obesity, hypertension, dyslipidemia, malnutrition, eating disorders, cancer, celiac disease, HIV/AIDS, and conditions related to unintentional weight loss.

Two-thirds of Medicare beneficiaries suffer from multiple chronic conditions. Medical nutrition therapy is a cost-effective part of care for many of these costly conditions. We encourage you and your colleagues to help ensure that seniors have access to care by supporting the Medical Nutrition Therapy Act of 2020."
