Nutrition and Reimbursement

Enteral nutrition reimbursement is reviewed on a case by case basis and requires specific documentation of medical conditions and proof of medical necessity. Enteral nutrition in the home setting is most often supplied by a durable medical equipment (DME) provider. Coverage guidelines will differ by insurance plan. Healthcare Professionals are encouraged to provide thorough letters of medical necessity and associated documentation in order to improve the likelihood of coverage for their patients.

Nestle provides tools to guide documentation of nutrition requirements and necessity. The Nestle Health Science Market Access team is available to provide information and assistance to enhance the likelihood of 3rd party payer coverage for medical nutrition therapies.

Reimbursement Resources
