Telehealth for Dietitians – What’s the Deal?
Holy whoa March. You threw us some curveballs. But April my friend us RDNs are coming for you with vengeance. And we are starting the month off right by getting down and dirty with the deets regarding telehealth for dietitians. So with that being said let’s get the party started.
Hands up for RDNs Collaborating
As a private practice dietitian, I am a LITTLE bit of a loner.
Well. I guess it would be more accurate to say I am a TOTAL loner.
You see, when you work in the world of private practice it is often YOU against the world.
Especially in the world of insurance reimbursement.
When I started my practice in 2007 I knew no other dietitians in private practice.
So I stumbled, fumbled & made EVERY single possible mistake possible.
Things that should have taken seconds to complete – took me days. If not months.
These are just a couple of the descriptive terms that come to mind when I think of my early beginnings as an insurance-based dietitian.
Enter a Community of Like-minded Dietitians
So, you can imagine my delight when I discovered social media accounts on places like Facebook & IG where dietitians in the world of insurance & reimbursement come together on the daily and openly discuss issues we are facing as insurance-based private practice RDs.
These social spaces have become my savior and the dietitians in these groups I am happy to call my sistas from other mistas.
This week I had the pleasure of serving on a panel of these reimbursement dietitian experts.
I was honored, humbled & excited – all at the same time.
These dietitians are freakin’ bosses.
Telehealth for Dietitians – We Break it Down for You
Six of us came together with the shared purpose of educating and bringing RDNs up to speed with the current changes in telehealth. And we created a video that summarizes EVERYTHING you need to know about the current changes in insurance reimbursement for dietitians.
In our video we go over the following:
- WHAT every RDN NEEDs to know about telehealth right NOW
- HOW telehealth for dietitians needs to be billed and coded to get paid FAST
- HIPPA requirements for telehealth for dietitians
- Documentation requirements for telehealth for dietitians
- How to get your patients on board with telehealth
- How to work with the aging populations and telehealth
- And much, much more
There has NEVER. EVER. been a better time to be an insurance-based dietitian.
Our nutrition services are NEEDED more than ever in pretty much every area of the population. Plus, almost ALL major insurances are covering telehealth with no co-pay or cost-share required.
