Some insurance plans cover nutrition counseling. Michelle Babb is a preferred provider with many of the major insurance carriers including:

  • Regence/Blue Cross-Blue Shield
  • Aetna
  • Premera
  • First Choice

Nutrition coverage differs with each plan, so if you have insurance through one of the providers listed above you should contact your customer service representative to check your benefits. Questions to ask your insurance provider include:

  • - Does my plan cover nutrition visits with a registered dietitian who is a preferred provider?
  • - Do I need to have a referral from my primary care physician?
  • - Do I have a limit on how many visits I am allowed?

You will need to bring your insurance card to your first appointment.
