Welcome to our series of frequently asked questions. If you need additional information after reviewing these FAQs, simply use the contact form below to send us your inquiries. We'll get back to you ASAP!
WHAT IS FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE NUTRITION?
Functional Medicine practitioners look “upstream” to consider the complex web of interactions in the patient’s history, physiology, and lifestyle that can lead to illness. The unique genetic makeup of each patient is considered, along with both internal (mind, body and spirit) and external (physical and social environment) factors that affect total functioning.
This philosophy is applied to Functional Nutrition recognizing that there is no single “right diet” that applies to all of us. We have
different genetic backgrounds, different preferences, and different lives. It's about knowing what to do and how to do it to bring about lasting change and support true personal health transformation.
Functional Nutrition offers the concepts, strategies, and tools to make that happen!
WHAT FOOD PLANS DO YOU USE IN PRACTICE?
Food Plans if appropriate, are customized to the individual and may include Mediterranean, Low Carb, Keto, Keto-Flex, Low FODMAP, SCD, Elimination Diets, Cardio-Metabolic, Low Oxalate Diets, Low Histamine Diets, Wahl's Auto Immune Paleo (AIP), and more. Comprehensive screening and careful monitoring is a part of any recommended food plan. Also essential, recode nutrition provides guidance and support for reintroduction or maintenance for your continued well-being.
WILL MY HEALTH INSURANCE COVER NUTRITIONIST SERVICES?
Eligibility for insurance coverage is very individual, it is advised that you inquire with your insurance company regarding coverage for medical nutrition therapy (MNT) with respect to your individual policy.
WHAT FORMS OF PAYMENT DOES RECODE NUTRITION ACCEPT?
Recode nutrition accepts debit and credit cards. In some cases a Health Savings Credit card can be utilizied. Payment is due in full within 14 calendar days from date of service. ReCode Nutrition does not bill insurance, however a "superbill" can be provided for you to submit for potential reimbursement.
IS LAB TESTING AVAILABLE?
Yes, lab testing is available and often recommended. If you wish for lab testing to be billed through your insurance it is necessary for it to be ordered by your primary care provider. A lab "wish list" can be provided so that you can make this request with your care provider. Otherwise, we will facilitate a lab order, direct ship any neccessary lab test kit(s) to you and assist you with obtaining a blood draw either at a Labcorp site or with a mobile phlebotomist, if/when needed.
IS TELE-HEALTH AVAILABLE?
Tele-health is available world-wide, however services rendered are considered "consult only" and thereby subject to greater limitations for insurance reimbursement. It is recommended to check with your insurance provider prior to contracting for service.
