Lisa has been the Reimbursement Rep for CA for 3 years. She has a small private practice and works primarily with a non-profit to oversee their Senior Nutrition programs- Meals on Wheels and Congregate lunch. She is a Medicare provider but doesn't accept private insurance.
Lisa notes that "California is unique because we are so large and represent a very diverse area. We are not licensed and that maybe the reason it is hard for RDNs to get credentialed with private insurance companies. MediCal (our state's Medicaid program) does not have RDNs are providers so I am working to get the RDNs involved with the MediCal Managed Care organizations."
