Health Insurances and Payments
we accept currently 

Did you know that your insurance may cover nutrition counseling?

  • Many insurance companies would still cover medical nutrition therapy (aka nutrition counseling) as a preventive benefit, even if you have no medical condition.

  • We encourage you also verify your nutrition benefits by calling back of your insurance card (1-800 number) What questions to ask during verification? <--click here 

Insurances we accept/in-network:

  • We accept -> Aetna, BlueCross BlueShield, HealthPartners, Optum (UHC), Medicaid (MA and MinnesotaCare), Medicare, Medica, PreferredOne in Minnesota. (Coming soon UCare)

We provide Superbills (if out-of-network insurances):

  • In this case, you'll be paying us with your credit card upfront.

  • Superbills are RECEIPTS we provide to you and YOU submit to your insurance company for reimbursement, IF you have out-of-network nutrition benefits.

We accept HSA/FSA cards also

  • In this case, you prefer be using your HSA/FSA cards.

Cash pay:

  • We offer PROMPT PAY discounts if you pay at the time of services. We accept all major credit cards, online. 

 VIRTUAL visits on secure platform:

What questions should I ask when calling my insurance company to verify your nutrition benefits?

Do I have nutritional counseling coverage on my insurance plan?

  • If the insurance company asks for a CPT code please provide them with the following codes 97802 & 97803. If they say you do not have coverage using those codes NEXT ask them to check your coverage for the following CPT codes: 99403 or 99404.

Are telehealth visits covered under my plan?

Will my diagnosis be covered?

  • If the representative asks for a diagnosis code – please tell them the visit is coded the ICD 10 code: Z71.3

  • If they don’t accept Z71.3 then provide them with Z72.4 and see if they will cover that diagnosis instead on your plan. 

  • If you are overweight, obese, have pre-diabetes, diabetes, hypertension, or high cholesterol you may want to see what your coverage is for these diagnoses as well. 

  • I always code your visit using preventative coding to maximize the number of visits you receive from your insurance carrier.

How many visits do I have per calendar year?

  • Your carrier will let you know how many visits they are willing to cover. Depending on the carrier the number of visits varies from 0 to unlimited depending on medical need.

Have I met my deductible?

  • In the event, you have a deductible I will not be able to initially bill your insurance company directly. Therefore, you'll be paying for the services with a credit card.

  • I 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, I can then directly bill your insurance company.

Do I have a co-pay for nutritional counseling?

  • For most insurance companies I am considered a specialist. Therefore, your specialist co-pay is applicable and is payable at the time of service. This information is often apparent on the front of your actual insurance card. However, often because we bill your insurance with preventative counseling the co-pay is often not applicable. We generally wait for the claim to be processed to determine whether or not you have a co-pay and then charge the credit card you have on file with us the co-pay amount. 

Lastly, please don't forget to note the representative name you talked with AND the reference number of the call for your records.
