Prepare for your nutrition visit
You must check insurance coverage before coming in for your appointment.
Even if you have an excellent insurance policy it does not mean you have coverage for nutritional services. To verify your nutrition coverage please call the 800 number on the back of your card and ask to speak with a representative from member services.
Please ask the representative the following questions:
- Do I have nutrition services on my current insurance policy?
- Is my diagnosis covered? [You can get this diagnosis from your doctor]
- How many covered visits do I have per calendar year?
- What is considered a calendar year for my current policy?
- Do I have a co-pay or deductible for nutrition services?
You will be asked to pay any applicable co-pays and/or deductibles at the time of your visit.
You will need to pay for your counseling session at the time of service. Each visit $200.00 and last around 1 hour. Therefore, please make sure to verify your insurance PRIOR to your visit.
We are happy to provide you with a “Superbill” and/or an itemized invoice you can submit to your insurance company for reimbursement in the case we don’t participate with your insurance.
To book an appointment with insurance, and you have a copay, you will need to add a credit card before booking. In the event your claim gets denied by your insurance company (or if you have an outstanding co-pay/deductible) your credit card will be charged for the visit.
Each visit $200.00 and last around 1 hour. Therefore, please make sure to verify your insurance PRIOR to your visit. We assume no responsibility for the verification of your benefits.
In the event you have a deducible we will not be able to initially bill your insurance company directly. Therefore, payment of $200.00 is due at the visit. We will provide you will the appropriate documentation to submit to your insurance company to show receipt of the services. This will allow you to “pay down” your deductible. Once your deductible has been met and you have nutrition services on your policy, we can then directly bill your insurance company.
We accept credit cards and ACH transfer, and HSA. We do not accept checks.
We have offices in New York and Florida.
