I work 1:1 with a limited number of women who are inspired to learn how to listen to their body, want to feel energized and ready to tackle any running goal or life adventure!
This program is for women who…
|Are ready to stop relying on tracking apps to tell them what, when or how much to eat|
|Are ready to challenge their mindset around what a nutritious day can look like in any stage of running|
|Are ready to respect their body and eat in a way that supports complete health|
|Are ready to create positive and lasting habits around food|
|Are ready to feel confident in themselves|
*If you are currently suffering with an eating disorder or disordered eating and stable for outpatient care, 1:1 support is the best option for you.
This program is not for runners who…
|Want to continue relying on calorie tracking apps to tell them what, when or how much to eat|
|Are not willing to challenge their mindset and want to stay stuck in their negative health beliefs|
|Are in need of inpatient treatment for a current eating disorder|
|Want a restrictive plan that tells them exactly what to do|
|Are only wanting to lose weight|
Frequently Asked Questions
Do you accept Insurance?
At the present time, Christina is a provider with BCBS-IL.
What happens if you do not participate with my insurance?
In the event that you carry insurance that we are considered out of network, you will need to self pay for sessions.
We can provide you with a “Superbill” and/or an itemized invoice you can submit to your insurance company for potential reimbursement. Reimbursement is based on your policy’s standards. Please call your insurance company’s member services number to verify how reimbursement works under your current insurance policy.
Please note, I cannot submit directly on your behalf – I can only supply you with the appropriate paperwork.
What questions should I ask when calling my insurance company?
Do I have nutritional counseling coverage on my insurance plan?
- If the insurance company asks for a CPT code please provide them with the following codes 97802 & 97803. If they say you do not have coverage using those codes NEXT ask them to check your coverage for the following CPT codes: 99401, 99402, 99403 and 99404.
Will my diagnosis be covered?
- If the representative asks for a diagnosis code – please tell them the visit is coded the ICD 10 code: Z71.3
- I always code your visit using preventative coding to maximize the number of visits you receive from your insurance carrier.
How many visits do I have per calendar year?
- Your carrier will let you know how many visits they are willing to cover. Depending on the carrier the number of visits vary from 0 to unlimited depending on medical need.
Have I met my deductible?
- In the event you have a deductible, I will not be able to initially bill your insurance company directly.
- I will provide you will the appropriate documentation to submit to your insurance company to show receipt of the services. This will allow you to “pay down” your deductible. Once your deductible has been met and you have nutrition services on your policy, I can then directly bill your insurance company.
Do I have a co-pay for nutritional counseling?
- For most insurance companies I am considered a specialist. Therefore, your specialist co-pay is applicable and is payable at the time of service. This information is often apparent on the front of your actual insurance card.
“I started working with Christina before my first marathon to help me navigate food for the crazy training but also for my IBS. I was struggling to meld the two without landing in a port-a-potty every mile! It’s been so helpful to understand how the two goals can blend without feeling totally overwhelmed or restricted on foods I can eat. Her approach is flexible and focuses on the issues that are specific to me, when they are happening. And the best perk was getting to message her with any and all of my questions anytime they popped into my head.”
