Frequently Asked Questions
WHERE ARE YOU LOCATED AND WHAT DAYS DO YOU SEE CLIENTS?
Due to COVID-19, I am currently ONLY seeing clients via teleheath using a HIPAA-compliant version of Google Meet. One advantage of telehealth is that it allows both of us to have much more flexibility in scheduling. If your insurance does not cover telehealth visits, we can meet in-person at my office located near Firth, NE.
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO TO GET READY FOR MY FIRST APPOINTMENT?
Once your initial visit is scheduled and the forms are filled out during scheduling, you will need to verify your insurance benefits with your insurance company. There's nothing else you'll need to do - it's as simple as that!
I’VE NEVER SEEN A DIETITIAN. WHAT SHOULD I EXPECT IN A NUTRITION COUNSELING SESSION?
Your first appointment will last approximately 60-75 minutes and follow-up appointments typically last 30-45 minutes. Your initial session includes a comprehensive nutrition assessment including reviewing medical & family history, weight history, diet history, food allergies/intolerances, current nutrition-related concerns, and what goals you want to set for our work together. Generally in the first session, I do provide a modest amount education based on your underlying medical condition and/or goals. However, the majority of the session is dedicated to gathering the information I need to fully comprehend your current dietary issues, establish why they exist and how I can effectively work with you to resolve them. Based on your assessment, Lindsey will recommend a plan of care and set up your next session. Follow-up appointments will include exploring nutrition-related challenges and wins since the last session, additional nutrition education, nutrition recommendations, and support.
DO YOU TAKE INSURANCE?
WHAT IF YOU AREN’T IN-NETWORK WITH MY INSURANCE COMPANY OR I DON’T HAVE INSURANCE?
If your insurance does not offer any out-of-network benefits, you don't have insurance, or you choose not to use your health insurance for any reason, I do offer a substantial "prompt pay" discount (or what you may think of as a "cash pay discount"). The rates listed on my website for services rendered are my "prompt pay" discounted rates. Payment is due at the time of service.
