Will my health insurance pay for appointments with a RD/RDN?

Our providers are in-network with most major insurance companies: Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, UMR, and United Healthcare.

Many (but not all) plans offer nutrition benefits to meet with a Registered Dietitian. We recommend you call your insurance ahead of time (and get a reference number) to find out if services are covered. You can use the script below to call the number on the back of your insurance card and find out. 

(Note - a Word document of this script can be downloaded on the main FAQ page)

Even if we are not in network with your insurance, you may still qualify for out of network services. If your insurance has out-of-network nutrition counseling benefits, you will be provided a document called a "Superbill" that has all the necessary information to submit to your insurance company, which may then reimburse you directly, according to your benefits.

We do all of our billing in house, so if you have more questions about insurance or billing, please feel free to contact our office.
