What makes a registered dietitian nutritionist more qualified?
A registered dietitian nutritionist is a nutrition professional that is trained and required to meet strict educational requirements. They must complete a bachelor's degree, an accredited supervised practice program (dietetic internship), pass a national exam and must complete continuing professional educational requirements to keep their license active.
Do you take insurance?
TLB Nutrition Therapy does not accept insurance. However, Tina can provide superbills (medical receipts) that may be submitted to your insurance provider for possible reimbursement. Please note that Tina is an out-of-network provider for all insurance companies. If your insurance covers nutrition sessions it is important to ask if they cover out-of-network providers to see if submitting superbills for reimbursement would be possible.
Here are some questions to ask your insurance provider to check if nutrition sessions are covered:
1. Do you cover nutrition sessions? If so, do you cover out-of-network dietitians?
2. If you cover nutrition sessions and out-of-network providers, how many sessions are covered per year?
3. If you do cover nutrition sessions and out-of-network providers, are there any medical diseases you cover?
4. What percentage of my nutrition bill is covered by insurance?
5. Do I need approval from my Primary Care Physician in order to receive nutrition coverage?
Are sessions confidential?
All of your in-person sessions will remain confidential per HIPPA requirements. Please note that if you choose to have sessions via FaceTime or Skype that these are not confidential through HIPPA requirements. The best way to honor HIPPA is to have in-person sessions or TeleHealth through the program VSee. All information discussed in and outside of sessions will not be disclosed unless you provide a release for disclosure. If you provide releases for disclosure for outside providers, family members or others, then Tina will be able to discuss your treatment with those individuals to best assist your recovery.
What is your cancellation policy?
TLB Nutrition Therapy requires a 24 hour cancellations for all scheduled appointments. A session fee will apply if cancellations are not done within the 24 hours. TLB Nutrition Therapy does understand emergencies and understands that sickness and emergencies cannot be helped.
