Let's be BEST version of ourselves
Insurances we accept & Payment information
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 do this for you with your permission and encourage you to also verify your nutrition benefits by calling back of your insurance card (1-800 number)
Can you self-refer (without provider's referral)?:
Insurances we accept/in-network:
We accept -> Aetna, PreferredOne, BlueCross BlueShield, HealthPartners, MultiPlan, United (UHC), Medicaid (MA and MinnesotaCare), Medicare and Medica in Minnesota.
We provide Superbills (for out-of-network plans):
Superbills are RECEIPTS we provide to you and YOU submit to your insurance company for reimbursement, IF you have out-of-network nutrition benefits. In this case, you'll be paying us with your credit card.
We accept HSA/FSA cards
In this case, you prefer to use your HSA/FSA cards.
Self pay/Cash pay:
We offer PROMPT PAY discounts if you pay at the time of services. We accept all major credit cards.
VIRTUAL visits on secure platform:
Our services are provided on HIPPA compliant platform and data is stored on secure electronic medical records.
Appointments are VIRTUAL currently. Video is preferred over audio. This adds convenience- right from your home/ workplace/during lunch time, reducing travel time and independent of weather conditions. You should be in Minnesota during telehealth visit for insurance to pay.

What's "Good faith Estimate"?
This helps understand the costs in advance: Getting cost estimates before you get care if you’re uninsured or self-pay
Beginning January 1, 2022, if you’re uninsured or don’t plan to submit your claim to your health plan, health care providers and facilities must provide you with a “good faith estimate” of expected charges before you get an item or service. The good faith estimate isn’t a bill.
Providers and facilities must give you a good faith estimate if you ask for one, or when you schedule an item or service. It should include expected charges for the primary item or service you’re getting, and any other items or services provided as part of the same scheduled experience.
In 2022, the estimate isn’t required to include items and services provided to you by another provider or facility, but you can ask these providers or facilities for a separate estimate. In 2023, the provider or facility will be required to provide co-provider or co-facility cost information.
Note: You could be charged more than the estimate if you get additional items or services during your visit or procedure that your doctor didn’t anticipate.
What to expect from a good faith estimate
Providers and facilities must give you:
Your good faith estimate before an item or service is provided, within certain timeframes.
An itemized list with specific details and expected charges for items and services related to your care.
Your good faith estimate in writing (paper or electronic). Note: A provider or facility can discuss the information included in the estimate over the phone or in person if you ask.
Your estimate in a way that’s accessible to you.
Disputing charges higher than the estimate
Once you get your good faith estimate from your provider or facility, keep it in a safe place so you can compare it to bills you get later.
If you get the bill and the charges are at least $400 above the good faith estimate, you may be eligible to start a patient-provider dispute.
