Did you know that most insurance plans cover nutritional counseling? This is often the case EVEN if you don’t have an actual diagnosis and still want to come in for preventative care. 

Check to see if your insurance policy will cover the visits! Simply call the 800 number on the back of your insurance card and ask to speak with a representative.

Mention that sessions will be done through Telehealth, ask if you need a diagnosis, or have a copay and you are all set!
