Questions?Let me know!
Not many people have had a consultation with a nutrition professional, and we hope to change that. If you have any questions about our programs, do not hesitate to ask.
Do you accept insurance?
I am currently an in-network provider for the following insurers:
CDPHP (Capital District Physician Health Plan)
MVP (Mohawk Valley Physicians)
BSNENY (Blue Shield Northeastern NY)
UHC (United Healthcare)
What types of nutrition services are covered?
Nutrition coverage varies greatly, so we recommend calling prior to coming in to make sure you understand your coverage. Here are some questions to ask:
Do I have coverage for nutrition counseling on my plan?
Is it limited to any specific diagnosis?
How many visits do I have?
What is my specialist co-pay? (may apply)
Have I met my deductible yet? (may apply)
What's the difference between a Registered Dietitian and a Nutritionist?
Nutritionist is an unregulated title, so anyone can call themselves a nutritionist, whether they have taken a one day course or have a PhD in Nutrition Science.
A Registered Dietitian Nutritionist has completed an undergraduate degree in nutrition science (or equivalent), completed an internship, and often has additional education (such as a Masters or PhD).
Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDNs) specialize in different areas, similar to other medical professionals. They are required to complete continuing education, and adhere to a code of ethics.
If you have any questions about RDNs, please ask. We want you to be comfortable knowing you have access to highly trained, professional and evidence based nutrition when seeing an RDN.
