Medical Nutrition Therapy

Her dedication to quality has led her to use Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics’s “MNT Evidence-Based Guides for Practice” for Diabetes and Hyperlipidemia, and in so doing, has become an expert on their use in everyday practice. To motivate others to use the Guides, she self-publishes EZ Forms for the Busy RD. These electronic diabetes and hyperlipidemia MNT forms and worksheets in electronic format are especially designed to match the protocols in the Guides and to be consistent with Medicare’s MNT coverage requirements.


Diabetes Self-Management Education

Mary Ann has taken these skills “on the road”. Her popular turn-key DSME
program, Control Your Diabetes for Life© has been successfully adopted by hospitals not wishing to reinvent the wheel. Diabetes educators become the “patients” so that Mary Ann can"train-the-trainer” on all aspects of this diabetes self-management program.

By retaining Mary Ann’s consulting services for their MNT and DSME programs, hospitals and clinics have been able to increase physician referrals, significantly increase insurance reimbursement for MNT and DSME services and decrease operational expenses.

Mary Ann is a nationally recognized speaker not only on reimbursement and the above areas, but also on nutrition therapy for various diseases at specialty patient programs. Her ability to entertain audiences, and communicate complex subjects in easily understood formats is exceptional!

Money Matters in MNT and DSME: Increasing Reimbursement Success in All Practice Settings, The Complete Guide, 3rd Edition© that is used by healthcare professionals (RDs, RNs, billers, CDEs, etc.) around the country to successfully and dramatically increase their insurance reimbursement revenue. Her condensed “Reimbursement Quick Guide” has been published by the American Association of Diabetes Educators and other quick
guide formats are on various websites of professional organizations.

Mary Ann has over 20 years of MNT Program development experience. She has successfully opened hospital-based Outpatient MNT Clinics, developing and implementing all aspects of the Clinic (MNT protocols, marketing, operations, budget, claims tracking, etc.). Mary Ann is able to achieve and maintain a claims payment rate of over 80% and an average reimbursement rate among all payers (private, Medicare, managed care) of over 60% to insure fiscal viability.
