Does my insurance cover nutritional counseling?

You should verify your benefits before our appointment. What to ask when you call:

  • Get transferred to: Benefits and Eligibility
  • Does my insurance cover Nutritional counseling? 
  • When you reach a representative, say: “I am calling to see if a certain CPT CODE  (97802 and 97803) is covered under my plan.”
    • Is nutrition counseling considered preventative?
    • Is a medical diagnosis needed to be covered under my plan?
      • If they ask for a diagnosis code: make sure to have that ready. This can be obtained by your doctor.
        • Examples: Diabetes: E11.65, Obesity: E66.9, Overweight: E66.3, Morbid Obesity: E66.01, General Nutrition: Z71.3, Eating Disorder: F50.9, High Cholesterol: E78.5 
  • How many visits do I have per year?
  • Do I need to reach my deductible first?
  • Will there be a copay?
  • What percentage of the appointment is covered?
  • Do I need a referral?
  • Do I need pre-authorization?
  • Ask the representative for a reference code and write it down. Bring the reference code with you to the first appointment.
