Frequently Asked Questions
Where are you located and what days do you see clients?
Due to COVID-19, I am currently ONLY seeing clients via teleheath using a HIPAA-compliant version of Google Meet. One advantage of telehealth is that it allows both of us to have much more flexibility in scheduling. If your insurance does not cover telehealth visits, we can meet in-person at my office located near Firth, NE.
What do I need to do to get ready for my first appointment?
I've never seen a dietitian. What should I expect in a nutrition counseling session?
Do you take insurance?
YES! I’m currently in-network with all payors who participate with Midlands Choice (including Cigna), select Medica plans, Medicare, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, as well as most United Healthcare plans. I’m a huge believer in providing access to affordable care (I mean, we pay hundreds of dollars a month for health insurance – shouldn’t we be able to use it?!). And believe it or not, your health insurance will OFTEN cover your visits with me (as well as your follow-up visits!). To read more about checking your benefits, click HERE.
Note: Clients are required to keep a credit card on file, which is charged at the time of your session. If you have a Health Savings Account (HSA) or Flexible Spending Account (FSA) debit card, this can also be used to pay for your sessions.
What if you aren't in-network with my insurance company or I don't have insurance?
If your insurance does not offer any out-of-network benefits, you don’t have insurance, or you choose not to use your health insurance for any reason, I do offer a substantial “prompt pay” discount (or what you may think of as a “cash pay discount”). The rates listed on my website for services rendered are my “prompt pay” discounted rates. Payment is due at the time of service.
What locations do you serve?
We can also accept clients from states that do not require formal dietitian licensure. Those include MIchigan, Arizona, Oregon, Washington, California, Idaho, Wyoming, Utah, Texas, Oklahoma, Wisconsin, Indiana, Virginia, West Virginia, Pennsylvania, New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Massachusets, and Connecticut.
