Did you know that your health insurance may cover in-person nutrition counseling appointments?
Please check with your individual plan ahead of time to determine coverage for the following codes.
NUTRITION CPT CODES
- 97802 initial nutritional assessment
- 97803 follow-up nutrition appointment
ICD-9 DIAGNOSIS CODE
- V65.3 dietary surveillance and counseling
Ask if there is a copay, how many visits are allowed, the maximum duration for each appointment type, if there is coverage for “out-of-network” providers, and if you have any “preventative coverage.”
Adair is an “In Network” preferred Provider with the following insurance companies:
Your insurance company may cover three visits per year as part of your prevention and wellness benefits. Additional appointments may be covered depending on medical necessity. A referral from your doctor may be needed, however, most health insurance plans do not require a referral when you see a provider who is “In-Network.”
Can't find your plan?
If you hold membership with a different insurance company (i.e. not Cigna, Aetna, or Coventry), you may request a superbill at the time of your appointment and use it to submit a claim to request reimbursement from your insurance company.
It does not cost anything to schedule an appointment using health insurance. Take the first step toward a healthier you - schedule today!
