Autism Dietitian


Frequently Asked Questions


Do you take insurance?

At this time, I am not taking insurance (with an exception for SoonerCare*). While I will be unable to bill your insurance directly, I can provide you with a SuperBill after we have our consult. A SuperBill is a form that shows my charges, procedure codes, and diagnosis codes that you can submit to your insurance as an out-of-network claim. Depending on your plan and if you have met your deductible, your insurance may be able to reimburse you. At this time, only consults are able to be included on SuperBills, not biomedical testing.

You can call your insurance and ask about reimbursement via a SuperBill. They will ask for two codes - a CPT code and an ICD-10 code. The CPT codes are as follows:

  • 97802 - Initial Nutrition Consult (6 units used)

  • 97803 - Follow-Up Nutrition Consult (3 units used each consult)

The ICD-10 code refers to your child’s diagnosis. For example, F84.0 is Autism Spectrum Disorder. You can ask your physician for ICD-10/diagnosis codes that apply to your child if you do not know them.

What is included in a consult?

How much does a consult cost?

I offer many different packages depending on what you are looking for. I would be happy to provide you a quote for a custom package. Schedule a free call with me and I can help build a custom package that would work best for your child’s unique needs.

What is Biomedical Testing?

Biomedical testing is a great way for us to test what is going on in the body for us to have individualized results and treat them with diet and supplements. Examples of biomedical testing are stool testing via GI-MAP, urine analysis via OAT, blood panels through MRT Food Sensitivity Testing and SpectraCell, and saliva analysis by 23andMe.

Can you cure my child’s autism?

To date, there is no known definitive cure or cause of autism. What I WILL do is provide your child with an individualized nutrition plan that will help treat root causes of autistic behaviors and assist you in helping them reach their nutritional recommendations. By following certain diets, participating in feeding therapy, healing the gut, correcting nutrient deficiencies, uncovering food allergies or intolerances, and decreasing systemic inflammation, we are able to treat many behavioral symptoms that stem from these underlying nutrition and medical problems without medications and help heal your child from the inside out. A large majority of people see great improvements in their child's behavior, academic performance, cognition, gastrointestinal symptoms, which all contribute to one's autistic behaviors. Just as every child is different, every child's improvement will be different.

(HINT: parents report higher success with nutrition intervention than medication usage).
