I worked Hard so You Don't Have to.
The 1:1 Reimbursement Coaching Package is designed to walk dietitians step-by-step through the entire insurance and reimbursement process.
This coaching package is administered within the context of 6-months. This is an adequate time frame for credentialing as well to teach you the specifics of accepting insurance in your practice.
The Reimbursement Dietitian 1:1 Coaching Program Unfolded
Here are the 6 areas we’ll work through during The Reimbursement Dietitian 1:1 Coaching Program.
- Pre-Credentialing: I will take you through the preliminary steps necessary to complete before you can become credentialed with the insurance companies.
- Credentialing: We will go through the process of identifying which insurance companies you want to participate with and how to get credentialed with each one.
- Coding: I will teach you what services are covered by insurance and how to code for these services when billing.
- Verifying Benefits: I will provide you with an easy-peasy strategy for verifying your patient’s nutrition benefits.
- Filing an Insurance Claim: I will walk you step-step in submitting your first electronic insurance claim.
- Getting paid: I will teach you exactly what to do when a claim gets rejected (it happens!) and how to determine whether or not you were appropriately paid by the insurance company.
How the coaching Program Works:
- Over the course of 6 months, you will be coached through the 6 phases of insurance reimbursement, in a one-one virtual setting with me, Amy Plano, The Reimbursement Dietitian.
- All calls are conducted via zoom to address and implement the 6 stages of reimbursement.
These calls vary in length and frequency depending on what stage of the reimbursement process you are in.However, typically calls are 60 minutes in length. And calls occur 2 times per month. You can record all calls.You can also contact me in between our calls via email with any questions or concerns you encounter. I will generally
respond to your emails within 48 hours during normal business hours 8 am – 5 pm Monday through Friday.
- You will have your own private Google Drive folder where you and I share and exchange documents, forms, and resources. You have unlimited access to your folder during your coaching program and up to 2 months after you complete the program. You can download and export any information you choose from the folder to your own personal storage device at any time during this time frame.
- The process of getting set up with insurance companies (credentialing) can take time. Each insurance company has its own rules. And no matter how many times I have walked dietitians through the process things don’t always go as planned. Therefore, ‘bumps’ in the road are to be expected.
You play an active role in the coaching process. There are many action steps YOU must take to move through the various reimbursement steps. This means in order to progress from one phase to the next, you must have had completed your responsibilities. Of course, I am there to help every step of the way – but there are logistical tasks you are responsible for executing.

Got questions about The Reimbursement Dietitian 1:1 Coaching Program. I gots the answers.
The Reimbursement Dietitian 1:1 Coaching Program focuses on the 3 CORE AREAS of your coaching reimbursement:
- Get credentialed
- Get paid
Once you are correctly set up with insurance, then you can then BILL, GET PAID and grow your practice. All my coaching material is designed to help you accomplish these three elements, using easy to follow strategies and systems.
The program focuses on making MONEY using health insurance in your practice.
It is a live coaching program delivered online where we work one-one together oftentimes several times per month. I walk you through each of three core areas and teach you how they are applicable for you and the state your practice is in.
I DO NOT do the credentialing for you.
I DO NOT do the billing for you.
I instead supply you with the resources, systems, and knowledge to get credentialed, bill & get paid.
You will complete the program feeling empowered knowing exactly how to use insurance to start and grow your practice.
This program is different from my GROUP reimbursement coaching program in that we work 1:1 together. Our calls are just you and I. We can really dive MUCH deeper into your business and practice in my 1:1 coaching program. We can also work on other areas of your business like creating groups, designing packages and creating more efficient workflows. You also have access to me via email or text in the time between our ZOOM sessions. This is a VERY personalized experience!
Versus my group reimbursement coaching program all members of the group are invited to attend all of the calls. All questions are asked on the group calls or on our LIVE group calls. My group program is equally as awesome just different.
Some RDs really LOVE a group environment. While other RDs want some tight handholding and higher personalization.
I LOVE working with RDs in BOTH capacity. However, it is all about what feels better for you.
You and I will personally ‘meet’ via Zoom for a minimum of 60 minutes, 2 times per month for 6 consecutive months. We might add on an additional monthly call depending upon what is happening with the credentialing process.
After each call you will likely need to take action. Here are some examples of actions you will need to take on your own:
- Calling the insurance companies you want to work with & see if they are taking on new dietitians.
- Emailing your affiliate reimbursement representative to identify the biggest payers in your state.
- Filling out your CAQH application.
- Purchasing your liability insurance.
I will ALWAYS direct you on the exact next steps you will need to take after our calls. I would anticipate in addition to our bi-monthly calls you will need to invest about 1 to 2 additional hours PER week over the course of the 6 months.
The program runs 6-months starting the date you sign the coaching proposal.
The total cost of the program is $4500 (or 6 monthly payments of $780.00 or 12 monthly payments of $385). If you choose the payment option you will be billed every 30 days for the 6-month duration of the coaching program. If you choose the 12-month payment option you will paying for the program after you complete it.
Remember this is an ACTUAL business expense incurred by your private practice. Therefore, make sure to speak with your accountant on how to properly document this expense. Save all your monthly invoices for tax purposes. You CAN and SHOULD deduct this service on your taxes.
This coaching program is NOT for dietitians looking to immediately outsource their credentialing and billing.
I DO NOT complete the CREDENTIALING process for you.
I DO NOT do the BILLING for you.
I instead teach you how to do both – so if at some point down the line you want to outsource these services you can. However, it is important you know EXACTLY how EVERYTHING works in the world of insurance before I would suggest doing that.
This program is for dietitians looking to learn how to get credentialed, bill and get paid on their own. I teach you the skills to empower you to grow your practice, make serious money and increase the number of people you can help with your services billing health insurance.
