Insurance Coverage for Nutrition Counseling

Verify Coverage

Your nutrition counseling appointments may be covered if you are a member of BlueCross BlueShield, Medica, United Health Care, or Medicare.

It is your responsibility to contact a member services representative to verify coverage. The phone number is on the back of your card. To help, we've put together some important questions to ask your member services representative.
