Aetna and BCBS Insurance:

Lutz, Alexander & Associates Nutrition Therapy is in network with Aetna (as of April of 2024!), BCBS. If you have Aetna or BCBS insurance of any state, we will file insurance claims on your behalf. (We ARE in network with Blue Home with UNC Health Alliance and Blue Home with Novant Health. We are NOT in network with the following BCBSNC health plans: Blue Local and Blue Value).

If you will be using your Aetna or BCBS health insurance policy to cover a portion of your nutrition therapy, you will need to understand your coverage, including your co-pays, co-insurance and deductible. We strongly recommend that you contact your insurance company prior to your first visit (see below).

Self Pay/Out of Network:

We are out of network with other insurance companies. We can provide you with a “super bill,” which can be submitted to your insurance company for reimbursement. You can call your insurance company to inquire about your out of network benefits. If we are out of network with your insurance company, you will need to pay for your sessions at the time of service. If you choose to submit the super bill to your insurance company, the reimbursement will be paid directly to you.

As of January 1, 2022, all healthcare providers are required to provide estimates for the costs of your care if we are not filing directly with your insurance company. A Good Faith Estimate will be provided by your clinician upon scheduling and/or as requested. While it is difficult to predict the number of sessions you will ultimately need to reach your treatment goals, we strive to be as transparent as possible about the cost of treatment during this process.
