See if you are covered
Most of the insurance plans will cover nutrition counseling and medical nutrition therapy. Often times it is covered at 100%– HOORAY! Here at Anderson’s Nutrition, we do accept insurance with the exception of Medicare and Medicaid plans* (see below). We will bill your insurance for you, however you are responsible to know and understand your benefits.
Here is how it works:
Locate the member services/customer service number on the back of your card.
Call your insurance company to check for benefits. Here are questions to ask:
1.Does my policy cover nutrition counseling and/or medical nutrition therapy?
See if these CPT codes are billable:
- 97802 & 97803
- S9470 (most common for BCBS)
2. What conditions and/or diseases are covered? (ICD-10 Codes)
- Z71.3 Healthy Eating
- E66.9 Obesity
- E66.3 Overweight
E78.00- High Cholesterol
I10- Hypertension (high blood pressure)
K90.0- Celiac Disease
Z91.01- Food Allergy
R73.09- Abnormal Blood Glucose (Pre-diabetes)
3. What is my cost?
Do I have a deductible?
Do I have a co-pay?
Do I have a coinsurance?
Often times with preventive counseling, there is no out of pocket cost.
4. How many visits do I get?
Tip: When does your plan renew? January or which month?
5. Is my provider in-network or out-network? Do I have out-of-network benefits? Yes, what percentage if covered?
Here is a list of our providers and their NPI numbers to check if they are in-network.

In- network– We will bill your insurance directly and will bill for any deductible, co-pay, or co-insurance.

Any patient that wishes to use insurance will be required to have a credit card on file for any denials (zero payment from insurance), deductibles, co-pays, and/or coinsurance. You will be contacted and bill prior to any charges. You will have an opportunity to discuss the charges and change method of payment.
We are happy to assist in any way we can! Please do not hesitate to email or call us. firstname.lastname@example.org or 602-770-7611(Central number)
*Medicare or Medicaid
We currently do not participate in either program. If you are insured through either of them, you may have the option to bill your policy directly. You will follow Step #2 (above). Then we will send you a “super Bill” and an instruction handout to help guide you along the way. Medicare or Medicaid will reimburse you directly. You will bill prior or at your visit and payment will be collected at that time of visit.
