If you do not see your insurance company listed, a Super Bill (detailed receipt of services rendered) may be provided. Many (not all) insurers will allow you to submit a Super Bill for reimbursement. To find out if your insurance will reimburse you for nutrition therapy, call the number on the back of your insurance card. For questions contact Jennifer at 617-744-9233.

Insurance Script:

  • Does my plan cover outpatient nutrition counseling in a private practice setting? (the patient is responsible for a fee-for-service is there are no nutrition benefits) 

  • If I do have nutrition benefits, does it only cover certain diagnoses? (For example, some plans will only cover Type 1 diabetes. Most insurance companies won’t tell you directly which diagnoses they cover.)

  • Does my policy require a referral, pre-authorization, or pre-determination?

  • How many visits do I qualify for each year?

  • What is my co-payment due at each appointment?

  • Do I have a deductible, and if so, will the cost of my nutrition appointment be applied to my deductible? (The patient will be responsible for the cost of the session out-of-pocket.)
