What is a Registered Dietitian?
A registered dietitian nutritionist is a food and nutrition expert who has met academic and professional requirements including:
Where do I meet with you?
Virtually! When you schedule your appointment, you will be emailed forms to complete prior to your appointment as well as a link to click when it's time for your appointment. All of our sessions are done via telehealth over the Simple Practice HIPAA secure platform.
How many appointments should I expect to have with you?
I work with clients both short-term and long-term. Everyone's journey is different but typically I encourage appointments on a weekly or biweekly basis starting out as there is a lot of unlearning and learning that goes into healing your relationship with food. We will figure out a plan during our first appointment that makes sense for you and your goals!
What forms of payment do you accept?
I accept most major credit cards. You have the option to pay using a flexible spending account (FSA) or health savings account (HSA) as well.
Will my insurance cover my appointments?
I am currently in-network with Highmark BCBS, Aetna and Independence Blue Cross including Keystone Health Plan East, Personal Choice, Independence Administrators, BCBS of IL, BCBS of MD, and CareFirst BCBS.
Typically, Aetna will cover 10-26 sessions per plan year (some with copays), IBX will cover 6 sessions per plan year, Highmark BCBS and other BCBS plans will cover unlimited sessions per plan year. However, you will need to contact your insurance company prior to your appointment to verify coverage with working with an in-network dietitian.
If you have a different insurance plan you may be able to submit a superbill to your insurance to seek reimbursement for nutrition services, if you have out-of-network coverage. This is something I can provide to you upon request.
Do you work with couples?
Yes! If you wanted to meet with me together, we would set up a 2 hour appointment for the initial and a 1.5 hour appointment for the follow up.
