Insurance coverage

Many insurance companies do include nutrition counseling in their benefit package.  To find out if your plan covers nutrition counseling you can contact your insurance provider, and ask the following questions:

  • Does my plan cover nutrition counseling?
  • If so, how many sessions do I receive per calendar year?
  • Do I need a referral?
  • Is there a copay?

We will bill your insurance provider and you will be responsible for the balance of the payment.  If your plan does not cover nutrition counseling, there are possible tax savings available that can assist in paying for your program.
