A common question asked is, "Does Insurance Cover Your Services?" Answer: Some do and some don't.
Payment for our services are by credit, debit, travel or check cards (Visa, MasterCard or Discover) and clients file their own insurance claims for reimbursement, when covered. Therefore, we have provided the CPT Codes for our services in the PDF Document above. With the CPT Codes, their medical diagnosis(ses) and its ICD-10 Code(s) from their physician(s), clients can check with their insurance company to see what they will reimburse. Also, clients receive copies of all their Lab Reports so they may submit them to insurance companies and physicians when needed. To further assist our clients, the Laboratory Reports for blood, saliva, urine and stool, also, includes the name of a physician.
Visitors to our website, who are interested in becoming a client, may also use these guidelines to check with their insurance company prior to payment for their Initial Assessment, in case services are covered.
A Clinical Nutrition Analysis of Laboratory Reports is provided to identify nutrient deficiencies, biochemical imbalances and organ/gland dysfunctions, not for the diagnosis of any medical condition, disorder or disease. Therefore, providing a Medical Diagnosis for the therapeutic supplement and dietary programs designed by Dr. Smith, based on abnormal nutritional findings, is outside the scope of a clinical nutrition practice. However, it is within the scope of a clinical nutrition practice to provide a therapeutic supplement and dietary support program for a client's medical diagnosis received through their physician.
After becoming a client, should their insurance company request a letter regarding clinical nutrition services, the client may compose a draft of the letter and submit it to Dr. Smith. If the information requested is within the scope of a clinical nutrition practice, Dr. Smith will be glad to finalize the letter and mail it to the client, or if the client provides the address and company name, we will be glad to mail it directly to the insurance company, including mailing a copy to the client for their records, whichever is preferred.
Note: The CPT Codes in the PDF document above are as current as we know them to be. We do not have a source for updates regarding these codes. However, when talking with your insurance company, they should be able to provide an updated code for the service listed in this document upon request.

A Word from Dr. Smith regarding this Secure Website. "I have had this website since the early 1990's. As you can see by its design, it is from an original style where the left column is the navigation bar, instead of today's contemporary websites that have a drop-down Menu. From the onset, this site has been secure from viruses and malware and still is.
You may have noticed Google is now placing a padlock icon to the left of website addresses, which can be misleading if you do not know what it means. If the padlock has a red slash across it, this means that the website is not secure for credit card processing. A red slash does not mean the website is not secure from viruses and malware. To be secure for card processing, the website requires an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) Certificate and special coding for this purpose. However, “Information only” websites, like this one, do not require an SSL because no currency is being processed through the website. Still, Google is placing the padlocks on all websites, and this is very misleading to those who do not understand their meaning.
Before the SSL Certificate and Coding, “https:/” represented websites that were SSL secure for card processing and “http:/” websites were not. However, though an http:/ website is not secure for card processing that does not mean that it is not secure against viruses and malware.
Please be assured that websites with http:/, padlocks with red slashes, and pop-up warning signs are now an "automatic" response from Google crawlers when they come across a website that does not have an SSL (i.e., does not a padlock without red slash), even if the website does not require one (like information only websites) OR the website cannot be coded for an SSL Certificate because it is an original website design from the 1990's or earlier. This website is both…it does not require an SSL because it is an information only website and it cannot be coded for SSL because of its original design; hence it will always have the red slash over the padlock. .
This website contains over 1000 educational webpages, which our contemporary websites are not designed to accommodate any more. This is why I plan to maintain this original design website from Network Solutions, who guarantees all of its websites are all virus and malware free, whether of original or contemporary design, and currently I do not provide a website that processes card payments.
