Will my health insurance cover Registered Dietitian services?

We are currently in-network with:

Blue Shield of California, United Healthcare, Oscar Insurance, and Health Net. 

We currently have a waitlist of up to 2 months for United Healthcare. 

Coverage and benefits may vary based on your diagnosis and specific plan. We ask that you contact your insurance company to check your benefits. There are often costs associated with using

insurance (co-pays, coinsurance, limited visits) and you, the client, will be responsible for those fees. Regardless of coverage, we require a credit card to be kept on file. Use the instructions below to check your benefits.


We are out-of-Network with many insurance providers including Anthem, Cigna, and Aetna. 

We are happy to provide you with a Superbill (session receipt) that you can submit to your insurance for potential reimbursement of your costs.
