Will Insurance cover my visits?

NADEC accepts a number of insurance plans. Many insurance companies will reimburse for office consultations if you have a health plan for which diet is recognized as part of your care. NADEC is a provider in-network with most of the major health insurance companies; however benefits vary depending on your policy and medical condition. You are responsible for any co-pays, co-insurances, deductibles or non covered services. We will submit insurance claims for your convenience.

We Recommend you call Your Insurance Provider Prior to the First Visit to Ask
  • Is nutrition counseling for your diagnosis a covered benefit on your plan? You may be held responsible for the charges, so it is best to get confirmation prior to your visit.
  • Is a referral required from your primary care physician?
  • How many visits are you allowed for nutrition counseling on your plan?
  • Do I have a co-pay?
We accept the following insurances

Aetna

What if my insurance does not cover for the visits?

Weight loss and some other nutrition related conditions may not be covered under your employee plan. If your insurance does not reimburse for the services, we can provide a discount if your charges are paid in full at the time of the visit. A payment plan can also be initiated at the time of service (An initial 50% down payment will be required for payment plans).

Cancellation policy

NADEC requires a minimum of 24 hours advance notification to cancel an appointment. You are responsible to pay for appointments that are not canceled within 24 hours of your scheduled visit. A $25.00 fee will be charge to your account for missed appointments.

Payment

We accept cash, credit card or check for your consultation fees or co-pays. For office consultations full payment is expected at the time of the visit. A $35.00 processing fee will be assessed for returned checks.

  • A list of your medications and any vitamins or supplements you are taking.
  • Current Insurance card and picture I.D.
  • Co-pay as specified by your plan at the specialist rate.

Video Conferencing:

It’s often difficult to take time off from work and come to our office. That is where video chats come in handy. After your initial in-office visit, follow up appointments can be scheduled in this way.

If I choose a consultation via phone, do I call you?

There is no need to call the dietitian. She will call you at the scheduled appointment time at the number you provided when you booked your appointment.

All consultations can be done by Skype (video, audio or text chat), phone. We provide weekend and evening appointments upon special request.
