CASH/OUT of POCKET

Some of you may not have insurance coverage or may have other financial barriers. Think of the expense to see a dietitian as an investment in your health. You will save money in the long run. We also offer affordable payment plans. Contact us for more information.

**IMPORTANT**

If your insurance company states that Nutritional Counseling is a covered service, then they are supposed to pay. HOWEVER, this is not always the case and most insurance companies do note that “The quoting of benefits is not a guarantee of payment” and “eligibility and benefits determination will be made at the time the claim is submitted for processing.” Dupage Dietitians has dealt with various insurance companies and experienced many cases such as the above – it is the patient’s responsibility to dispute unpaid claims with their insurance company.

Dupage Dietitians accepts all major Credit Cards, Checks, and Cash.
