Blue KC adds nutritional counseling benefit
Starting January 1, 2024, nutritional counseling will be available to your employees and their covered dependents as part of their Blue KC health plan. The health plan’s cost share applies – typically deductible and coinsurance – and based on provider billing practices, a specialist office visit cost share also may apply.
Nutritional counseling is available with any medical diagnosis. The employee and primary care provider can discuss to determine if it is appropriate. There is no limit to the number of nutritional counseling visits in a year.
Nutritional counseling is personalized, one-on-one dietary guidance and advice that can help people understand how diet affects their overall health.
Please contact your Blue KC representative for more information about nutritional counseling.
