In part I of our dietitians-to-be series, we shared resources to help you ace the RDN exam. In part II, we provided tips and tricks directly from practicing dietitians to help you prepare for the test. Once you have those RDN credentials behind your name, we’re here to support you in your venture into private practice! Here are the steps to start taking in order to set up your practice to accept health insurance on behalf of your clients, opening up your doors to more clients as a result.
Since 2015, Healthy Bytes has been empowering dietitians to become an integral part of medical care by connecting them with patients, providers, and payers. In 2020, we’re taking that to the next level.

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?
How do you know whether to collect a copayment from your client? And if you do need to collect a co-pay, when do you collect it? Let’s dive in!
Whether or not your client is required to pay a co-pay, or a fixed amount that one pays for a covered healthcare service after the deductible has been met, is determined by the client’s health insurance plan.
