Prior to Making An Appointment:
If you have one of these insurance plans, we still need to ask that you confirm that nutrition services are covered. To do this, before you make an appointment with us, call your insurance provider and ask "what nutrition services and how many visits are provided" under these two CPT codes:
CPT 97802 (nutrition initial visit)
CPT 97803 (nutrition follow-up visit)
If they ask for a diagnosis code, you will need to get that from your physician. Do ask if "preventative care or wellness services" are covered, some plans cover preventive care services. I know this takes extra time to check before you come in, but we don’t want you to have any surprises with your insurance company’s covered benefits. If you are struggling with an Eating Disorder check out your rights to nutrition coverage here.
Once you get confirmation your insurance does cover nutrition services, you will need to get a confirmation code or reference number and give that to our office when you schedule your appointment. This ensures the claim will be processed. Should you need a referral with your plan you can request MNC Nutrition by using our NPI# 1760825160.
Plan to pay any co-pay you have and know any deductibles that apply. If an insurance claim is denied, it is your responsibility as the patient to pay any remaining balance in full.
If we are not an in-network provider for your insurance we can offer discounted out-of-pocket services and submit claims on your behalf.
