BEFORE YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT

PREPARING FOR YOUR FIRST APPOINTMENT

We're so excited to get started working with you! This page explains how to prepare for your first appointment with Positive Nutrition.

Before your first appointment, please ensure you complete the following:

  1. Fill out the online paperwork that was emailed to you via Simple Practice. If you did not receive the paperwork, please check your spam or junk folders. If you can't find the email, you can go here: https://positive-nutrition.clientsecure.me/ and click "I'm an existing client" and your username is the email you gave us. Your PIN will be sent to your email address. In the welcome paperwork, you will fill out your insurance information, practice policies, demographic info, etc.

  2. If you are planning to use your insurance, please call the number on the back of your card and use this script to inquire about your benefits. Be sure to note the name of the representative, the date, and the reference number for the call so you can refer to the conversation if you ever want to contest an insurance decision.

  3. Please reach out to your therapist or medical provider and ask them to fax us documentation of any medical/behavioral health diagnoses you have. This is REQUIRED for anyone requesting we bill their insurance or provide a superbill. Click here for the therapist referral form and click here for the medical provider referral form. Your referring provider can fax us the form directly or if they give it to you, you can upload the form into your client portal (sign in with the instructions from step 1).

 

Here's a little more information and context:

It is not in a registered dietitian's scope of practice to diagnose. Therefore, when we bill insurance under a medical or behavioral health diagnosis, we require documentation of the diagnosis to ensure we are complying with licensure rules and our scope of practice.
