Not all insurance plans cover nutrition, but many do. We encourage families to call their insurance company and ask if they have benefits for nutrition counseling, CPT code 97802/97803. Ask if there are any restricted diagnosis if you have a deductible to meet before insurance coverage and if a referral is required. Ultimately it’s up to the client to know their plan’s benefits and will be responsible for payment. Click here for an instruction sheet on verifying benefits.

- If we are billing insurance and the claim goes toward the deductible, the client is responsible for the rate that goes toward the deductible.
- For an appointment canceled less than 24 hours in advance, there is a $50 fee not payable by insurance, which must be paid before scheduling your next appointment.
