I work mainly as an inpatient dietitian with the inpatient cancer unit and then I teach one class a month at the cancer center. Occassionlly I speak with patients over the phone, but I have an increasing number of people wanting one-on-one nutrition visits. However, my boss does not want me to see anyone one-on-one unless the cancer center can find a way to bill for it. Does anyone have any suggestions for ways to bill for nutrition at an outpatient cancer center? Thanks in advance!

I am a new outpatient RD. I don't know a lot about billing, as it is very complex. Generally insurances do not reimburse nutrition therapy for oncology patients. A way around that is if the physician orders the nutrition education, you can bill under that provider's name and document it as patient education secondary to that provider. I hope this helps a little bit? Maybe there is a billing specialist where you work that could help with getting this set up? I would also like to hear what other outpatient RDs are doing.
