  • WHAT SERVICES ARE COVERED BY INSURANCE

    Lifestyle Health accepts insurance for General Nutrition. We are in-network providers for HealthPartners, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medica, Mayo, Preferred One, MinnesotaCare, Medicaid, Medicare and others.

    General information:

    • Our goal is to provide you with a range of payment information, so you can select the best option for your budget.
    • Flexible spending accounts (FSAs) and health savings accounts (HSAs) are usually eligible for coverage. Health reimbursement accounts (HRA) also may provide coverage under certain circumstances.
    • Insurance coverage varies. Ask your insurance company (find the customer service number on your insurance card) about covered services. Here are a few questions to ask:
      1. Will my plan cover (insert service)? It may be helpful to share these CPT codes for Functional Nutrition dietitian visits: 97802 and 97803.
      2. How many visits are allowed per calendar year?
      3. Do I need prior authorization?
      4. Do I need a referral?
      5. Do I have a co-pay?
      6. Do I have a deductible? If yes, has it been met?
    • Some policies require a referral from a primary care physician for the treatments to be covered and may have annual limits. Most policies do not require a referral.
    • Medicare has limited coverage for dietitian visits.
    • Our cash price is $150 for three visits with a dietitian. If billed through insurance, cost would be approximately $640 due to added paperwork for medical billing, diagnostic coding, communication with insurance companies, etc.
    • Your insurance may require you to pay your deductible before covering dietitian visits. A deductible is an amount of out-of-pocket expense that you must pay before your insurance benefits start. Deductibles are usually calculated on a calendar-year basis, and any covered medical expenses that you pay for out-of-pocket should be applied toward your deductible until it’s been met for the year.
    • If you are in a high deductible plan, our cash option may be the best value for you.
    • If you have questions, please call our office.
