Personal Nutrition Coaching

Work one-on-one with one of our friendly nutrition coaches to create a personalized roadmap to a healthier, happier diet and lifestyle. It starts with an initial nutrition assessment. From there you will decide on your follow-up schedule. We find that clients have the most success with biweekly or monthly sessions. Additional tools and services like our meal plans, DIY guides, and courses can be purchased to help you succeed.

Initial Nutrition Assessment

This appointment takes about 60-90 minutes and is all about you. Your nutrition coach will get to know your lifestyle, food choices, current habits, and goals for the future. From there your dietitian will have some personal nutrition recommendations, tools, and ideas to offer. Together you will create a nutrition and wellness roadmap complete with baby steps for you to start taking right away.

Follow-Up Sessions

After your nutrition assessment, you and your dietitian will determine the best way to monitor your progress and how often to follow up. Follow-up coaching sessions are very important for staying accountable, discussing barriers, gaining momentum, and building healthy habits that will last.

Please call the number on the back of your insurance card to ask if nutrition counseling (CPT code: 97802) is covered AND if Well Balanced Nutrition is considered in-network. We also recommend asking the following questions:

  • Are there any restricted diagnoses? (ask specifically about the diagnosis code Z71.3 and if it’s covered as preventive)
  • Do I need a referral or prior authorization?
  • Is nutrition counseling covered when provided via telehealth?
  • How many visits are allowed?
  • Do I have a deductible to meet before insurance pays?
  • Will I have a copay or coinsurance?

If insurance declines to cover your visit(s) for any reason, you are responsible for the full amount billed.

​If we are out-of-network with your insurance, sessions may still be covered. Upon request, we can either send a claim to your insurance on your behalf or provide you with a superbill to submit yourself for possible reimbursement. Payment is due from you at the time of service.

Locations

We continue to provide services online via secure video calls (aka telehealth).

We use a secure, HIPAA-compliant platform called Healthie. When it’s time for your session, all you need to do is click the link we send to your email. Easy peasy! You can use your computer, phone, or tablet… You don’t even need to get out of your pj’s! =)
