If you are planning to utilize insurance, please refer to the information below to ensure you have coverage for registered dietitian visits. My being in-network with your insurance carrier does not guarantee that your specific plan covers our visit.
I suggest calling your member number (typically located on the back of your insurance card) and asking specifically about:
- Do you have coverage for a nutrition consult (billed as CPT 97802 [initial visit] or 97803 [follow up])?
- What specific diagnoses are covered (ask for specific ICD-10 codes [weight loss, diabetes, etc. all have different codes])?
- Do you need a physician referral for insurance to cover your visit?
- Do you have a co-pay, co-insurance, or deductible to meet?
Once you have this information, please contact me to schedule. If you do not have coverage, I have self-pay options. If you do have coverage, I will take care of all of the billing.
I appreciate you taking the time to determine your coverage. This will save us both a lot of time and should keep you from getting any surprise bills.
If you need further help determining your coverage, let me know!
