What Should I Expect?
We practice medical nutrition therapy from an integrative medicine and intuitive eating perspective. We are a weight neutral practice following Health at Every Size© principles. You should expect to discuss your goals, current health, training schedule, medical history, and lifestyle habits at your first appointment. At follow-up appointments expect to discuss progress on tasks and mini-goals along with any changes in appetite, mood, energy level, performance or recovery. This post discusses what to expect in more detail.
Do You Take Insurance?
Fueled & Fed Nutrition is an in-network provider with CareFirst Blue Cross Blue Shield.
For other insurance companies, we can provide a superbill for you to submit to your insurance provider.
You are responsible for checking your insurance coverage and providing payment for any services not covered. This post describes the questions to ask your insurance company.
Do You Accept HSA/FSA?
Yes. It is recommended that you obtain a letter from your primary care physician stating that medical nutrition therapy is a medical necessity.
Do You Work with Children?
We work with clients ages 16 and up and will refer to other nutritionists for younger clients.
Do You Offer Family Sessions?
We meet with clients individually unless a client is under 18 years old. We can discuss strategies for feeding your family at your individual sessions.
Do You Offer Meal Plans?
Typically, no. We have found that meal plans are too inflexible for our clients’ needs. Instead, we focus on establishing sustainable habits and building on those from week to week. We are happy to discuss how a food fits into a balanced diet or if it aligns with a specific condition. The primary exception to this policy is clients with eosinophilic esophagitis who require a top-8 allergen-free diet.
Do You Offer Sliding Scale?
Yes, sliding scale appointments are available to clients who are not covered by insurance or who insurance with a high-deductible that they cannot afford. Please contact us to discuss further.
What is your poor weather policy?
We follow Alexandria City schools closures and will be closed for in-person appointments if schools are closed. We will contact you to either keep your appointment at the same time via telehealth or reschedule to a later date.
