  • How do I check my insurance coverage?
    I strongly encourage you to check insurance coverage before your appointment. Even if you have an excellent insurance policy it does not mean you have coverage for nutritional services. To check your insurance coverage: Contact your insurance provider directly by calling the 800 number on the back of your insurance card. Provide them with my name and NPI number: Amanda Ciprich/ NPI:1447873492. Do I have nutrition services on my current insurance policy? Please ask for the specific coverage for CPT codes. Is ICD10 Code E10.9 covered? Does my plan cover telehealth services? Does my plan require a MD referral? How many MEDICAL MNT visits do I have per calendar year? How many PREVENTATIVE MNT visits do I have per calendar year? What is considered a calendar year for my current policy? Do i have a deductible for nutrition services? If so, have I met my deductible? Do I have a co-pay or co-insurance for nutrition counseling? What is the reference number for the call? Please note the reference number for the call- if there is an issue with billing, this reference number can be used to clarify any mistakes with your insurance provider.

    We are in-network with a wide range of insurance providers to ensure our services are accessible to as many clients as possible. I am currently in-network with Aetna, Blue Cross Blue Shield and United Healthcare. If I do not participate with your insurance plan (out-of-network), I can provide you with a super-bill that you can submit to your insurance plan for out-of-network reimbursement. Please be aware that my current license allows me to practice in the following states: Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Florida, Hawaii, Idaho, Indiana, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, Wisconsin, and Wyoming.

  • Are visits conducted in-office or virtually?
    At this time, all visits are conducted virtually via a HIPAA compliant platform. Currently, most insurances are covering for telehealth services due to the pandemic. Therefore, when you schedule your visit you will be directed towards the next steps to setting up properly for your telehealth session. However, it is possible your insurance plan may impose a cost-share for you to use this service. Therefore, please call your insurance company to confirm your telehealth coverage PRIOR to scheduling your visit.

Your T1D Dietitian

Hi, I'm Amanda

During my senior year of high school at the age of 18, I was blindsided by a life-altering diagnosis: type 1 diabetes. It hit me like a ton of bricks, leaving me feeling lost, overwhelmed, and filled with fear of my future. Determined to take control of my health, I ultimately became hyper-fixated on measuring every piece of food and drastically reducing my carbohydrate intake.

It was during this challenging period that I made the decision to pursue a career as a registered dietitian nutritionist to deepen my understanding of diabetes and nutrition even more. Throughout my academic career, I discovered a transformative truth: people with diabetes don’t have to sacrifice the foods they love in order to maintain healthy blood sugar levels. 

Now after more than a decade, I have transformed my own journey into a guiding light for others who face the same challenges of restriction, obsession, and anxiety around food.

 

Armed with both personal experience and professional expertise, I have the incredible privilege of supporting individuals with type 1 diabetes and their families.

 

Together, we rewrite the narrative of diabetes, replacing fear and restriction with empowerment and possibility.
