Policies and Rates for Nutrition Counseling
Insurance cannot be billed directly. However, you will receive a coded paid invoice to submit to your insurance company for possible reimbursement. A letter from your physician to your insurance company regarding the patient's diagnosis, the doctor's decision in the referral to a dietitian, and the importance of nutrition counseling can be helpful.
Fees are due at the beginning of each appointment in the form of either:
5-15 minute initial phone consultation: Free
1st appointment, 60 minutes: $140
Follow-up sessions, typically 30 minutes: $70
If you arrive to your appointment late, the session will end at the scheduled time regardless of when it started and full payment is expected. For example, if you arrive to your follow-up 15 minutes late, you will receive 15 minutes of nutrition counseling and be charged for the full 30 minutes.
No Show and Late Cancellation Fee
Please notify Erin as soon as possible if you need to cancel or reschedule your appointment--either by phone or email. If you do not attend your appointment or have not given 48 hour notice, you will be charged the full session fee. Exceptions include dangerous weather or medical emergency. No show and late cancellation fees are expected before the next appointment.
