Vickery Wellness, LLC does not accept insurance directly, but can provide a superbill for out-of-network reimbursement.
Checking your insurance policy’s benefits:
*Please check and see if you have telehealth benefits in addition to MNT benefits. Things are rapidly changing due to COVID-19 and some insurance companies are changing policies.*
We recommend you contact your insurance company to see what benefits your plan may have regarding Medical Nutrition Therapy (MNT) coverage. Please specify this is for telehealth, as Vickery Wellness, LLC is a virtual private practice.
Call the phone number for customer service which is usually located on the back of your insurance card. Ask if MNT is a covered benefit based upon your plan and diagnosis. You will want to ask exactly what they will cover in terms of diagnosis, number of visits, and what they will pay after you reach your deductible. If your insurance company says that MNT is a benefit, be sure to document the date and who you spoke with and ask them to send you the information in writing.
The procedure codes we use for MNT are: 97802 (initial assessment) and 97803 (follow-up assessment). The diagnosis code used will depend on your situation.
After each visit, we will provide you with a superbill receipt if requested. We can also provide this on a monthly basis if it’s easier for you. You can submit this receipt with a CMS1500 form (or whatever form your insurance company requests) to try to receive out-of-network reimbursement. Do NOT sign over payment to us as the provider.
We recommend keeping track of your visits and submissions with the insurance company in order to keep your reimbursement organized.
