Beve is not “enrolled” in Medicare. Medicare clients, however, are allowed to see Beve as a Registered Dietitian and offered a discounted cash rate per private contract with Beve Kindblade, MS, RDN, CD. At time of service and payment, patients receive a detailed sales receipt. The receipts can be submitted to Medicare for reimbursement using CMS Form 1490S – Patient’s Request for Medical Payment. Write the following statement on the bottom of the form: “My Healthcare Provider Is Not Enrolled in Medicare” and submit the form with attached sales receipts. You can only submit this paperwork to Medicare and not any additional or secondary insurance companies.
