1. What is dietary advice?

Dietetic care consists of education, with a medical objective, about diet and eating habits and treatment in the form of dietotherapy aimed at removing, reducing or compensating diseases related to or influenced by diet, such as dieticians generally provide.


You are not entitled to dietetic care if you already receive this care for the same disorder within a framework of integrated care or within the framework of combined lifestyle intervention.

2. When will you qualify for reimbursement?

You will qualify for a reimbursement for dietary advice if you need adapted food or a special diet because of a disorder, for example.

3. A referral is required for non-contracted care

For dietary advice from a non-contracted dietician, you need a referral from a general practitioner, a medical specialist, a youth doctor, doctor for the mentally disabled, company doctor or a geriatrics specialist. This does not apply to care provided by a contracted care provider who has successfully completed the Direct Access course. You must enclose a copy of the referral when submitting the invoice.

Are you 18 or older? The costs incurred for dietary advice will count towards your compulsory policy excess and any voluntary policy excess.
