Prices for nutrition consultations

For self-payers & clients with Zusatzversicherung (EMR)

Nutrition consultations comprise the following approaches - both:

  • medically approved dietary advice (-> focus on nutrition & health)
  • nutrition psychology (-> focus on body, emotions & nutrition)

For a first or single session, I recommend to reserve up to 90 minutes. 

 

The following prices are for the sessions. A certain time, for example for preparation, up to 15 minutes is included in the price. Please, ask your Zusatzversicherung if and how much they are going to cover. 5 min are charged with 13 Sfr.

  • 90 min session    first or single session    234,- Sfr
  • 60 min session    follow-up-session          156,- Sfr
  • 45 min session    follow-up-session          117,- Sfr
  • 30 min session    follow-up-session            78,- Sfr

Sessions can take place in my practice, via phone or video.

For patients with prescription

With a prescription from your doctor, Verordnung zur Ernährungsberatung, the health insurance (Grundversicherung) pays for a certain number of sessions.

 

Indications qualifying for a prescription:

  • obesity (body mass index at least 30 kg/m2 and more)
  • metabolic disorders
  • malnutrition and eating disorders
  • stomach and gut problems like reflux, food intolerances, irritable stomach, irritable bowel syndrome
  • food allergies
  • kidney insufficiency

The prices for the consultations are according to an agreement between the Schweizerischer Verband diplomierter Ernährungsberaterinnen (SVDE) und Santésuisse.

 

On average, the health insurance pays 72 Sfr for a session which has to include analysis of medical reports as well as reporting to doctors. Thus, a session can last not more than 20-25 min. For more information regarding conditions and duration of sessions, please see here.
