Utilizing Medical Insurance Benefits

In-Network Companies:

• Anthem Blue Cross
• Blue Shield of California
• United Healthcare
• Health Net
HSA + FSA cards are also accepted for payment

Please note that your specific policy, not your insurance company will determine your nutrition counseling coverage. It is imperative that you call to find out your coverage first to understand your financial responsibility!

Out-of-Network Coverage:

All other plans not mentioned above

If you have out-of-network coverage for nutrition counseling, we can provide you a Superbill to submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement. The Superbill can be generated after each consultation.

Checking for Medical Nutrition Therapy Coverage:

Step 1: call member services
Step 2: ask for eligibility + benefits
Step 3: dietary counseling w/ registered dietitian (procedure codes: 97802, 97803)
Step 4: in network coverage (my NPI: 1831648435)
Step 5: do you need to meet your deductible before coverage applies? Have you already met it?
Step 6: are there any conditions they won't cover?
Step 7: is your coverage under preventative or medical?
Step 8: are there any limitations on the number of sessions per year? Will there be a copay?
Step 9: ask for reference id and document it in case you need to reference this at a later time
