Ask Your Insurance Provider
To ensure you are covered we recommend you call member services (find the number on the back of you insurance card) and ask them the following:
–Does my plan cover Medical Nutrition Therapy/nutrition counseling by a Registered Dietitian?
–If yes, how many sessions are allowed?
–Does my plan require a referral?
–If so, have your PCP office call your insurance company to submit the referral and obtain an authorization number.
–Is this benefit limited to specific diagnoses?
–Do I have a deductible to meet first? Do I have a co-pay?
–If so, how much is it?
Once you have set up an appointment with us and you know which dietitian you’ll be seeing, you can share their ‘NPI’ number with your doctor’s office to process the referral.
