NUTRITION COUNSELING BASICS/FAQ
What is Nutrition Counseling?
Nervous about seeing a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN)? Don’t be! A good nutrition consultation isn't like a lecture about what you should be doing, and you won’t feel as though you’re being scolded or judged on your eating habits, either. Rather, you'll experience a caring and compassionate relationship with careful listening to understand where you are right now in terms of your lifestyle and diet, and a collaborative approach to help you achieve your goals.
Does Insurance Cover Nutrition Counseling?
Nutrition counseling (medical nutrition therapy) is a covered benefit for many insurance plans. If you or your child has a medical diagnosis such as diabetes, overweight or obesity, failure to thrive, constipation, severe food allergy or other condition, a consultation with a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (RDN) will likely be covered. Insurance coverage does vary and a physician referral is usually required. Contact your insurance provider directly or Megan can assist with verifying coverage. Currently, Megan is an in-network provider for Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts and Harvard Pilgrim Healthcare insurances. For other insurance networks, you will receive a superbill (detailed reciept) which you can submit to your insurance provider for reimbursement. The superbill is not a guarantee of reimbursement.
What payment options are available for services?
Payment is due at the time of service. Payment methods accepted: cash, credit (Visa, Mastercard, American Express, Discover), Health Savings Account (HSA) and flexible spending accounts (FSA). For insurance reimbursement, you will receive a superbill which you can submit for reimbursement. The superbill is not a guarantee of reimbursement. Telehealth services are not covered by insurance.
