HOW OFTEN DO I SEE THE NUTRITIONIST?
Follow-up is important to monitor your progress, make changes to your treatment plan, and provide you with support. Most patients meet with Coco monthly. Our purpose is to work with you to achieve your health goals, until you can independently manage your nutritional health.
DOES INSURANCE COVER MY EXPENSES?
Lifetime Nutrition, LLC is a fee-for-service practice. We do not participate with any insurance company. We are not a Medicare or Medicaid-approved provider. We therefore do not submit your bill to insurance. Lifetime Nutrition will provide you with a receipt of your payment at each in-person visit that includes a procedure code. If you wish to submit your bills to your insurance company for possible reimbursement, we request that your physician complete a Nutrition Referral form (see New Patient Packet – Forms) and that you ask us for a Superbill form at each visit.
DOES LIFETIME NUTRITION COORDINATE WITH OTHER HEALTHCARE PRACTITIONERS?
Yes. With your authorization, we will be happy to communicate/coordinate with your current healthcare practitioner; we may recommend the services of other healthcare practitioners (for example, physicians, naturopathic doctors, psychotherapists, chiropractors, massage therapists, energy healers, acupuncturists, and/or others) to enhance a holistic approach to your health care.
DOES LIFETIME NUTRITION REQUIRE SPECIAL LABORATORY TESTS?
Functional metabolic testing is sometimes necessary to obtain more in-depth information. If additional testing is required to help determine your nutritional or health status, we will provide you and your doctor with that information. Lifetime Nutrition, LLC uses, but is not limited to, the following labs:
