Payment & Insurance Information
Medicare Provider NPI: ____________________
I am a Medicare provider. As a Medicare provider, I can bill for diabetes and chronic kidney disease only with a medical nutrition therapy referral made by your doctor.
Medicare covers 3 hours the first year you use this service and 2 hours each year thereafter.
Please print the referral form and have your doctor complete it and fax to me at 530.891.9537. I will then contact you. You may also contact me using the Contact Information on the top-right side of this page, or use the convenient form on the Contact page.
Many private insurances will cover Medical Nutrition Therapy for diabetes. You will need to contact your insurance provider to see if Medical Nutrition Therapy is covered for your particular health issue. The CPT (billing code) that I use is 97802. You may also want to find out how much of the visit your insurance provider is willing to cover. Sometimes a person/family has a high deductible which has not been met for the year, so the visit may not be covered.
If you wish to make an appointment and do not have insurance or your insurance will not cover your visit, I do accept cash payment at time of visit.
