We need to hear from you! It has come to the Academy‚Äôs attention that a provision of the 21st Century Cures Act (Section 5005) goes into effect January 1, 2018 and may have an impact on registered dietitian nutritionists who are providers under state Medicaid managed care plans. 

The Academy is working on potential solutions to proactively avoid any unintended negative consequences to RDNs currently participating in Medicaid managed care plans.

We need your help to identify the potential impacts on members in Wisconsin.

Please take a few minutes to answer the questions below. Please send all responses and supporting documents to Responses are needed by Sunday, October 15th.

1. Have you or a fellow Wisconsin RDN received letters from any Medicaid managed care plans with notification of potential disenrollment from the provider network? 


2. If so, please share with us a copy of the letter(s) by emailing them to


3. Do you have any comments or stories related to potentially negative consequences a lack of Medicare coverage may cause to your clients? 


Thank you in advance for your feedback!!
