*Please note that BCBS plans from states other than MA may NOT be covered. Please check with your member services representative to determine whether or not your plan provides coverage. (The contact number will be listed on your insurance card.)
IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR ALL INSURANCE PLANS:
1) Due to healthcare policies, a letter of medical necessity from the primary care physician is required for all patients if you wish to have your appointment covered by insurance. This information can be provided to Jan Hangen, MS, RD, LDN via mailed letter, fax, or confidential phone message.
2) Each insurance plan has a separate policy for nutrition coverage. Thus, even if you think that your plan provides nutrition coverage, please call the member services number on your insurance card and speak directly to your member services representative to determine whether or not you have benefits for nutrition consultation. This applies to all plans, including those that do not require referrals.
The questions to ask your insurance plan representative are:
IMPORTANT: If you have a deductible that has not been met, nutrition consultation may be included in your plan’s deductible. In these cases the claim may be denied even if you have a referral. The patient is thus responsible for the fee for service.
If you have an HMO, POS, or an EPO plan please obtain a referral from your PCP prior to the consultation. My NPI # is: 1487736880.
