At Einstein Healthcare Network, we believe nutrition is a vital component to a person's health and well-being. Our registered dietitians offer personalized nutrition counseling with the goal of encouraging gradual long-term changes in your eating habits and lifestyle. Each appointment is designed to cater to your individual health and nutrition needs. Whether you have a medical condition or you simply want to learn how to eat healthy, we can offer counseling to help you achieve your goals.
Our registered dietitians are trained and knowledgeable in medical nutrition therapy. Some areas of expertise include, but are not limited to:
Initial appointments last one hour and include time for your registered dietitian to complete a nutritional assessment, nutrition education specific to the patient’s needs, goal setting and an overall nutrition plan.
Follow-up appointments last 30 minutes and include time to discuss goals, new nutrition education topics and a new or slightly revised nutrition plan.
Nutrition Education topics discussed during appointments may include:
Medicare only covers medical nutrition therapy for people with diabetes or non-dialysis kidney disease. Please call your Medicare provider to confirm how many visits per year you are approved for.
For other insurances, patients should call their insurance companies and ask:
It is the patient’s responsibility to verify insurance coverage. If you are asked for a procedure code, mention 97802 or 97803.
If you do not have insurance coverage, self-pay rates are available.
Call your insurance company to ask if your plan requires a referral.
Your registered dietitian would strongly prefer a copy of a referral from the referring physician. The referral form can provide important medical diagnosis codes required in order to correctly receive insurance reimbursement. You can bring the referral to your first appointment or you can have it faxed to 215-456-4992, attention: Outpatient Nutrition.
