Do I Have Nutrition Counseling Benefits?

December 8, 2020

By Tiffany

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:

  1. Do you have coverage for a nutrition consult (billed as CPT 97802 [initial visit] or 97803 [follow up])?
  2. What specific diagnoses are covered (ask for specific ICD-10 codes [weight loss, diabetes, etc. all have different codes])?
  3. Do you need a physician referral for insurance to cover your visit?
  4. 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!
