CareFirst/Blue Cross Blue Shield and Nutrition Counseling in Maryland
Carefirst/Blue Cross Blue Shield* and its subsidies (Carefirst Blue Choice) generally covers nutritional therapy visits with one of our Registered Dietitian Nutritionists (RDN) if there is a diagnosis of…
- Type II or Type I Diabetes
- High Cholesterol
- High Blood Pressure
Since the insurance company will never guarantee coverage, we also cannot guarantee coverage of medical nutrition therapy appointments.
Are you a member of the Federal Employee Program?
The Federal Employee Program sponsored by the Blue Cross Blue Shield covers 6 visits per calendar year with an RDN for any reason, including healthy eating!
What if I want to be seen, but I do not have a diagnosis of Diabetes, High Cholesterol, or High Blood Pressure?
Our RDNs are here to help! If you would like to be seen at RBA without one of the previously mentioned diagnoses, we offer a self-pay package of 3 visits for $360. Since we are in network with Blue Cross Blue Shield, we will submit to Blue Cross Blue Shield as a courtesy to determine if they will cover your visits, and can reimburse your payment if insurance covers your visits, or you can use your balance toward another one of our services. Additionally, you may also verify medical nutrition therapy benefits with your insurance company your diagnosis. Please see our Insurance Guide if you have any questions about calling insurance.
