Billing commercial insurance payers for Medical Nutrition Therapy is poorly understood, yet preventive counseling is a highly valuable and profitable service line for outpatient clinics. To educate clinicians on the billing, coding, and other methodologies for successful claim payment, we will explore how registered dietitians should navigate outpatient billing procedures for commercially insured patients.

He is the program coordinator for the Internal Medicine Subspecialty Clinic Weight Wellness Program at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, TX. After having bariatric surgery to pursue his personal health and wellness goals, Mr. Schellinger began his journey toward more direct patient care. He completed a Master of Clinical Nutrition at the UT Southwestern School of Health Professions where focused on adult weight management, diabetes education, and obesity/bariatric-surgery research.
Mr. Schellinger joined Dr. Jaime Almandoz and the Weight Wellness Program to combine his interests in nutrition education, metabolic and weight health, and patient-focused research.
