Before calling to schedule an initial visit, check on your insurance plan coverage.  Our staff will be more than happy to assist you with this.  You will be responsible for services not covered in your individual plan.

For all clients who do not participate in our accepted plans or for those without nutritional benefits payment is due at the time of your appointment.  You will be given a coded, paid invoice to send to your insurance company for possible reimbursement.  Reimbursement for nutrition counseling by an RD, referred to as Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) by the Academy of Nutrition & Dietetics and by insurance companies, varies among insurance providers and is dependent on diagnoses.  You, as the patient, are responsible for contacting your insurance company to determine coverage.

To verify your insurance benefits for nutrition counseling, please call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask them the questions below. Doing this will help ensure you get the most out of your benefits and avoid unwanted financial surprises.

  • Does my plan include nutrition counseling benefits? (CPT codes for nutrition counseling are 97802 & 97803)
  • Do I have any nutrition counseling benefits covered under the preventative care portion of my plan?
  • Is a doctor’s referral required?
  • Is there a limit on the number of visits I am allowed?
  • Are there any restricted diagnoses? (Is nutrition counseling only covered for diabetes, high cholesterol, anorexia nervosa, obesity, etc?)
  • Do I have a deductible to meet before insurance pays?
  • Do I have a co-pay or co-insurance?
  • Is Gina Hassick with Eat Well with Gina (NPI# 1750648440) a covered provider under my plan?
    If not, what are my out-of network nutrition benefits?
