We are not a medical group, but many doctors refer patients to Nutritionists and Naturopathic doctors
With the number of chronic health conditions on the rise, and the scientific proof that many of them can be managed through diet and lifestyle changes, more and more insurers are recognizing the value of one-on-one advice from a nutritionist. If your doctor can write you a “prescription” to see a nutritionist to improve a diagnosed health problem (obesity, diabetes, high cholesterol, etc.), it is likely that your insurance company or flex plan will cover all or part of our medical services. Tell them that you will be working with a certified Naturopath.
For many of our clients, nutrition counseling is categorized as “medical nutrition therapy”—a type of medical “intervention” that is viewed by insurance companies as more medically necessary than just “nutrition education” or “counseling.” A landmark report by the National Academy of Sciences’ Institute of Medicine (IOM) concludes that getting nutritional therapy is often well worth the cost. It showed that more than half the people who saw a dietician or nutritionist just three or four times reduced their cholesterol so much that they didn’t need cholesterol-lowering medication.
We don’t have the ability to accept insurance directly, but will provide you with a receipt that has all the necessary codes your insurance company needs so that you can be reimbursed.
