Frequently Asked Questions

+ Are you Accepting New Clients?

Yes! Visit the appointment page to schedule an exploratory call or appointment.

+ Do you accept insurance?

I am currently an in-network provider for

  • Aetna
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield NC
  • United Healthcare

Disclosure: Verification of benefits is not a guarantee of eligibility or payment; actual payment is based on terms and conditions of your insurance plan. All claims are subject to review as insurance will only cover dietary services that are reasonable or necessary. We make every effort to accurately verify your insurance benefits. In the event we receive inaccurate information from your insurance company, we will honor the contracted amount, determined to be patient responsibility by your insurer, and send you an invoice. Any co-pay not collected at the time of service will be invoiced to you as well. We encourage you to check your insurance benefits for nutrition counseling, codes 97802 and 97803.

Note that insurance benefits do not cover telehealth services (online), and require in-office visits. Clients outside of North Carolina, or who are unable to travel may use their HSA or Flex-Spending Account funds to private pay for services.

+ Are you available online or out of state?

I am currently licensed in North Carolina and availale to clients in a number of other states depending on their licensing requirements. I can provide telephone or video consultations for clients unable to meet in-person.

+ what types of clients can you help?

I am excited to offer a unique integrative and functional nutrition approach that is appropriate for most, if not all conditions and symptoms ranging from gastrointestinal, to cardiovascular, autoimmune, neurological, hormonal and many more. During our 30-minute exploratory call, we will begin with a summary of what's been going on with your health story thus far, and determine a strategy to reach your health goals. If I feel that I do not have the expertise required, I will refer you to a Registered Dietitian or other complementary healthcare practitioner that does.

+ Can you verify my insurance benefits

Yes! If you are interested in working with me, I can call to verify your insurance benefits for you. Generally NC BCBS plans cover nutrition counseling at 100%, no deductible, and no limit - which is fantastic! Some insurance plans only cover certain conditions such as diabetes or kidney failure, and still others will pay for other conditions, but require proof of medical necessity. I will file your insurance claims for you as well.

+ What are your rates?

Visit the appointments page to learn more about the packages offered. A la carte nutrition counseling and coaching sessions are available as well. If you do not find an option that will work well for you, lets talk about your needs and see what we can come up with, as custom packages are available. Packages can be purchased before the Free 30-minute Exploratory Call, or after.

I have seen other Dietitians, but none like Jill Brown. She is great! She is so knowledgable, but remains personable and explains the complicated world of food in a way that I can understand. She has made my transition into a new eating plan doable, giving me all the tools needed for success. This is the first time I’ve ever made major changes to my diet without feeling totally overwhelmed. -RS
