Are nutrition services covered by insurance?
Checking your insurance policy’s benefits:
It is recommend that you contact your insurance company to see what benefits your plan may have regarding Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT), or nutrition counseling coverage. Your physician might have to write a referral, it will depend on your insurance company. Call the phone number for customer service which is usually located on the back of your insurance card. Ask if MNT or nutrition counseling is a covered benefit based upon your plan. The procedure codes we use for MNT are: 97802 (initial assessment) and 97803 (follow-up assessment), and S9470 for nutrition counseling. The diagnosis code used will depend on your situation. Ask your physician for a referral to be faxed or phoned in to this office. Phone: 817-718-9412. Fax: 682-200-3258
