FAQ

What are treatments for eating disorders?
There are several treatment options for eating disorders. This includes seeing a multidisciplinary team, which can include but is not limited to a dietitian, therapist, psychiatrist, pediatrician, or PCP.

 

Can a nutritionist help with an eating disorder?
Yes! It’s 100% recommended to have a dietitian on your team when doing outpatient treatment for an eating disorder.

 

How does a nutritionist help with eating disorders?
A dietitian can help navigate meal plan recommendations, challenge food rules and beliefs, support challenging food exposures, and participate in meal and snack outings.

 

Does insurance cover eating disorder treatment?
Most insurance companies, pending the patient’s nutrition benefits under their plan, cover 100% of outpatient sessions with a dietitian. While we cannot guarantee 100% coverage as this is dependent on your insurance plan, there may be times when the client may have a small copay, co-insurance, or pay towards their deductible.  This beats paying out of pocket anyday when you already pay each month just to have insurance.

 

How long is eating disorder treatment?
This really depends on the client and their motivation for recovery. In addition, there is no set time limit on when recovery has to be “finished” either. Setting a specific time can add additional stress and anxiety. Our goal is to help separate the eating disorder asap from the patient so they can go on living their best life.

 

Does eating disorder treatment work?
It absolutely can work and we truly believe in the power of recovery. However this is dependent on the patient as well. We tell our clients, we can make recommendations and support you, but we can not do the hard work for you outside of sessions.​
