Cash payment at time of service reduces that rate that is charged for your sessions.
We bill your insurance directly and you will be invoiced for any remainder due which is your responsibility (such as copay, coinsurance, deductible). It is important to note that insurance does not cover missed appointments or late cancelations and that will be your responsibility.
We are preferred, in-network providers with the following insurance companies:
Medicare/Medicaid: We are not contracted with Medicare or Medicaid. However, I can provide you with a form to submit to attempt reimbursement for cash sessions.
Insurance Authorization: Because every insurance plan is different, we can’t be certain your plan will cover your specific nutrition counseling needs. To find out, please call your insurance carrier. This form will guide you in asking the right questions.
If your insurance/health plan requires a prior authorization for nutrition counseling, please ensure you have this before setting up your appointment or you will be responsible for balance owing.
Video Appointments: Please contact Peacefully Nourished directly if you are interested in telehealth (video appointments) or telephone sessions. These are available but have limitations on insurance coverage.
WHAT TO EXPECT AT YOUR VISIT
I am excited to partner with you. Please check your email for instructions on how to complete intake paperwork before your first visit.
We'll spend the first visit exploring your concerns and what you hope to accomplish through nutrition counseling. We'll also ask about your medical history, eating patterns, beliefs about food and nutrition - all the details we need to design a nutrition plan and develop specific goals that fit your unique needs. Expect your first appointment to last 60-75 minutes.
Follow-ups usually last 55 minutes. During these visits, we'll work with you to implement your nutrition plan, and provide the support you need to make real, sustainable changes in your health and your relationship with food. Because that process takes time, we make sure your plan is based on achievable milestones. We want you to feel success at every step, not just the last.
