As you may know, insurance can play a significant role in healthcare coverage. Like other medical services, medical nutrition therapy is a service that may be covered by your insurance. Therefore, it is crucial to stay aware of the ins-and-outs of your insurance policy, including coverage limitations, copays, deductibles, and in-network providers. Additionally, insurance plans can vary widely, and some may require a referral or prior authorization for dietitian services.
By familiarizing yourself with the intricacies of your insurance coverage, you can navigate the complexities more effectively and ensure you receive the appropriate support and reimbursement for your dietary needs.
Initial and Follow-Up Visits: $125/hour
Sessions are approximately 75 minutes.

Renew Nutrition Therapy is in-network with BCBS NC and UHC. If you have any BCBS, UHC, or Aetna insurance, we will file insurance claims on your behalf. (We are NOT in network with the following BCBSNC health plans: Blue Local and Blue Value).
If you plan on using one of the above insurance policies to cover a portion (or fingers crossed...all) of your nutrition therapy sessions, you will need to understand your coverage, including your copays, co-insurance and/or deductible. We strongly recommend that you contact your insurance company prior to your first visit, to discuss nutrition coverage. After all, as a client of Renew, you agree to assume full responsibility for any/all owed payment.

We are out-of-network with other insurance companies. We can provide you with a “super bill,” which can be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement. You can call your insurance company to inquire about your out-of-network benefits. If we are out-of-network with your insurance company, you will need to pay for your sessions at the time of service. If you choose to submit the super bill to your insurance company, the reimbursement will be paid directly to you.
As of January 1, 2022, all healthcare providers are required to provide estimates for the costs of your care if we are not filing directly with your insurance company. A Good Faith Estimate will be provided by your clinician upon scheduling and/or as requested. While it is difficult to predict the number of sessions you will ultimately need to reach your treatment goals, we strive to be as transparent as possible about the cost of treatment during this process.
