Please contact your health insurance company and/or employer, or consult your policy for nutrition benefit details and exclusions. Find out:
- if you have medical nutrition therapy/nutrition counseling benefits with a Licensed and Registered Dietitian
- if you have a copay
- if you are subject to a deductible or coinsurance payment
- if you need a referral or doctors script
NOT all plans cover and pay for medical nutrition therapy/nutrition counseling with a Licensed and Registered Dietitian. PLEASE contact YOUR health plan and ask for details about your coverage.
Your health insurance policy dictates if you need a referral or doctor’s script for a specialist visit. Please contact your health insurance company or employer, or consult your policy regarding the need for referrals or doctor’s scripts for nutrition counseling with a Licensed and Registered Dietitian.
If your health insurance plan requires referrals or a doctor’s script from your Primary Care Physician, please obtain these documents BEFORE your appointment. Referrals and doctor’s scripts MUST be obtained from your Primary Care Physician BEFORE your first nutrition counseling appointment. Please request referrals for multiple visits to avoid frequent requests for new referrals or doctor’s scripts.
Please bring physician scripts to the appointment. Have your Primary Care Physician prepare and submit electronic referrals for nutrition counseling appointments.
Referrals and doctor’s scripts have an expiration date and/or a limited number of allowed visits. A new referral or doctor’s script is required for appointments made after the expiration date and/or all visits allowed have been used.
