The world is changing. I see your resiliency during this pandemic- friends, family members, business owners, and communities.
A change that impacts dietitians is the great shift to telehealth. I've been a telehealth provider for three years now and I've always touted telehealth because it's convenient and it allows access to high quality health care. But now I can add to my list of benefits: job security during a global pandemic.
Pre-pandemic, telehealth services were gaining steam but generally underutilized. One of the biggest reasons dietitians didn’t go the telehealth route is because insurance (at least in NC) generally did not reimburse for telehealth nutrition consults.
So here I am, I’ve been a BCBSNC provider for two years, and it is my first time filing a claim. If any other private practice registered dietitians are in this boat with me, here are my tips:
Maggie Perkins is a registered dietitian that does nutrition telehealth for families.
She focuses in family feeding, intuitive eating, and Health at Every Size©.
Her private practice, Tomata, is based out of North Carolina.
