Thank you for being a part of the Healthy Bytes community! We are implementing a change that will help your private practice run more efficiently. As you know, we focus solely on nutritional counseling billing and we are experts in billing nuances, including when an eligibility estimate can (and cannot) be useful.
Filing insurance claims can be intimidating, but they don’t have to be! Your Healthy Bytes billing allies are here to walk you through the lifecycle of a claim, starting with steps to take the moment you schedule your new client appointment.
The new year is just around the corner! As such, your clients may come to you with questions about their coverage for the remainder of the calendar year and heading into the new year, since many insurance plans will “re-set” come January 1st. How do you know how many nutrition counseling appointments your client is allotted for the remainder of this year? And what does coverage look like come January 1st – has anything changed?
You may have clients who have health insurance coverage via multiple insurance plans. Why might your client be covered under two plans? One reason may be they have primary insurance through their own employer, and secondary coverage via their spouse’s or partner’s insurance plan. They may also be a dependent under another person’s plan.
