What is the difference between a "Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist" and a "nutritionist?"

As Registered Dietitian-Nutritionists, we have completed Bachelor's and Master's degrees in nutrition. We have also completed American Dietetic Association Accredited clinical internships and passed national board exams. We also have the ability to diagnose nutrition-related problems.

 

A "nutritionist" is a blanket, unregulated term that anybody can claim themselves as. There are no credentials required to be considered a nutritionist, but there is a Master's, Bachelor's, clinical internship, and board exam required to be a Registered Dietitian-Nutritionist.

Do you accept insurance?

We operate as an out-of-network provider. If you have out-of-network benefits, you may be provided with a Superbill at the end of each month, which can be submitted to insurance carriers for potential reimbursement. You should check with your insurance carrier for details of your coverage.

If you would like to inquire about Out of Network Reimbursement, call the number on the back of your insurance card and ask the following questions to verify reimbursement before booking your first appointment:

  • Do I have out-of-network benefits to see a Registered Dietitian for the following CPT codes: initial session 97802, follow-up sessions 97803.

  • If yes, what amount of the fee will you cover?

  • Is pre-authorization required in order to submit an out-of-network claim?

  • What is the deductible, and how much of the deductible have I met?

​You may also ask exactly how to submit your Superbill for reimbursement.

If your insurance plan does not cover nutrition counseling but you do have a Health Savings Account or Flexible Spending Account (HSA/FSA) card, you can use that to pay for your sessions.

Do you offer sliding scale rates or scholarship spaces?

Yes. Yearly, we offer 5 sliding scale spaces for 1:1 counseling and scholarship spaces in our group coaching program. If you have a financial need, you may inquire about sliding scale and scholarship availability!
