Not sure about your coverage? This page is intended to answer some of the most common questions about out-of-network benefits.

Out-of-Network Benefits:

The providers at North Sound Nourishment and Recovery are considered Out-of-Network, meaning you will pay at the time of service and be directly reimbursed by your insurance company. Most insurance companies will pay a portion of medical and behavioral health services. Contact your insurance provider to find out what is covered under your individual plan. Often Out-of-Network reimbursements are similar to In-Network benefits. The primary difference will be the reimbursements are sent directly to you because you have already paid for these services. We will provide you with a superbill after each session so you can send them into your insurance company for reimbursement.

Allowable Amounts:

The term allowable amount refers to the maximum amount your insurance company will pay for a given service. In-Network providers contract with insurance companies and agree to keep their fees at these allowable amounts. North Sound Nourishment and Recovery, although Out-of-Network, and therefore not contracted with insurance companies, voluntarily attempts to stay at or near allowable amounts.

When you speak with someone from your insurance company, make sure to ask about:

  • Out-of-Network Benefits for outpatient medical health services
  • Allowable Amounts for each of the following common CPT codes for services
    • Medical Nutrition Therapy:
      • 97802 (Initial Assessment)
      • 97803 (Re-Assessment)

Once you gather this information from your insurance company you will know how much you will be reimbursed for service provided at North Sound Nourishment & Recovery.
