Referring patients for Nutrition Counseling

Diet Plan

We proudly accept insurance to make nutrition more accessible to your patients

FOR YOUR PATIENTS WITH
COMMERCIAL INSURANCE

Many of your patients have nutrition visits covered with little to no cost to them.

We verify each individual's benefits prior to scheduling, so there are no surprises.

We are in network with Aetna, BCBS, Cigna and United HealthCare.

FOR YOUR PATIENTS WITH
MEDICARE

We are in network with Medicare.

Medicare patients with diabetes or non-dialysis CKD have nutrition coverage.  Other diagnoses may be covered by secondary plans.

Requires referral from MD or DO.

FOR YOUR PATIENTS WITH
NO INSURANCE OR MEDICAID

We are not currently in network with Medicaid plans.  If we receive a referral for a patient with a Medicaid plan, we do our best to find a dietitian in their network and forward the referral to them.

Patients without any coverage have self payment option.

Who will be seeing my patients?

I'm a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist specializing in obesity, weight management and diabetes, and I am honored you are considering me to participate in your patient's care.  

I have collaborated with hundreds (maybe even thousands) of patients through my work at the Vanderbilt Weight Loss Center.   With their input and effort, we've been able to reduce their medication burden from diabetes, hypertension and cholesterol, improve outcomes for orthopedic and other surgical procedures, and improve their overall quality of life.  

If you have patients that you believe could benefit from nutrition counseling, please send them my way by giving them my information or submitting a referral (see button below).  You may check out my LinkedIn profile for additional information on my background and experience.  Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns.  I look forward to working with you to improve the health of your patients through nutrition!

Sincerely,

Marguerite "Megan" Bishop, RDN, CSOWM, LDN
