Initial Nutrition Assessment
We are so glad you are here! You are on your way to working with our team to improve your overall wellbeing. Nutrition therapy not only involves addressing what you eat, but also how you think and feel about food and your body. As you may have already read on our website, this is not a one size fits all approach. We will take a complete health history as well as strive to understand your needs, preferences, and goals in order to offer personalized support for your food and body concerns. We hope to create a relationship built on trust so that we can honestly and openly communicate with one another.
(Virtual and in-person sessions available)
Did you know that many health insurance companies cover nutritional counseling? Our providers are contracted with Aetna, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield, Cigna, UMR, and United Healthcare. To verify your nutrition benefits, simply call the member services number on the back of your card and ask:
Is Sollus Nutrition Therapy (EIN # 46-2339972 or NPI #: 1306235536) in-network with your plan?
Do you have coverage for a nutrition consult (CPT 97802 & 97803)?
Will my diagnosis be covered (Codes Z71.3 or Z72.4)? If you have a specific diagnosis such as an eating disorder, you can ask about coverage for this as well.
Do you have a co-pay or deductible to meet?
How many visits do you have per calendar year?
If we are in network, we take care of all the billing for you. If we are out of network we can provide the correct documentation (Superbill) for you to submit for reimbursement.
Follow Up Appointment
During the follow up appointment we will celebrate your progress, get curious about potential obstacles, and together make plan to move forward in your journey. We can provide nutrition education, assist with meal planning and portioning guidance, and create a structured meal plan or move towards intuitive eating depending on what is indicated. Because our habits are deeply engrained, making changes that will last a lifetime occurs in stages and often takes time. Be patient. People often wonder how many times we’ll need to meet. That entirely depends on the purpose of our meeting, your goals, your readiness to change, what support systems you have in place, and many other factors.
