Registered Dietitian Nutritionists are recognized as licensed health practitioners in all 50 states and therefore are eligible to bill insurance companies for services rendered.Darci is credentialed with most major insurance providers.
In fact, many health insurance companies offer nutrition therapy completely FREE to their beneficiaries**
Before scheduling an appointment, use this checklist to see if your insurance provider covers medical nutrition services or, call for assistance.
1) Locate the "Eligibility & Benefits" phone number on the back of your insurance card.
2) Call insurance provider and ask if your plan covers “Medical Nutrition Therapy” (CPT codes 97802, 97803)
3) Ask if there is a co-pay, % co-insurance or if services are applied to your deductible
4) Ask how many office visits are allowable and whether you need a specific diagnosis code* or a referral from your PCP
5) Write down the date, time and the name of the representative you spoke to
*If you have a condition such as diabetes, pre-diabetes, gestational diabetes, hypertension, kidney disease, high cholesterol, food allergies, an eating disorder or any gastrointestinal disease, mention it, as it may be an eligible diagnosis for medical nutrition services.
**Having health insurance does not mean automatic coverage.Plans vary significantly so please check with your insurance provider.
What to expect at your first appointment
