Medicare and MedicareAdvantage Plans
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 Beverly Kindblade, MS, RDN, CD. At time of service and payment, patients receive a detailed sales receipt. Please be aware that Medicare only covers nutrition visits for diabetes, kidney and liver issues. If you do not have these issues, Medicare and Medicare supplemental plans will not cover your nutrition visits.
Kaiser Permanente and The Polyclinic MedicareAdvantage Plans, however, will cover your nutrition visits with Beve with a referral from your Primary Care Physician assigned to you by the plan. You may or may not have a co-pay with your MedicareAdvantage Plan. If you have another MedicareAdvantage Plan, check to see if your visits will be covered.
