Insurance Coverage

Most insurance companies cover counseling services provided by a registered dietitian.

In some cases, you may be eligible for unlimited benefits with no copay or deductible. We accept:

  • Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • United Health Care
  • Aetna
  • Cigna
  • Medicare (covered for diabetes, chronic kidney disease, and BMI over 30)

After scheduling your visit, our coordinators will call your insurance provider to verify your benefits and will alert you of any copays or fees, if applicable.

Cancellation Policy

Due to the high demand for nutrition counseling at Avance Care, we respectfully ask that if you are unable to keep your scheduled appointment that you provide us with a minimum of 24-hour advanced notice. For appointments that are cancelled with less than 24 hours’ notice, a “no-show” fee of $75 will be billed to your account.

If you do not have or do not prefer to use your insurance coverage, we also offer a self-pay rate of $100 per 60-minute appointment.
