We are currently working with other insurance carriers and Medicare to be added as an in-network provider.  If we are not in-network with your carrier, we do offer  transparent self-pay pricing options.

Please choose your insurance provider from the list below for details.

Blue Cross Blue Shield North Carolina Plans

Many Blue Cross and Blue Shield policies now cover medical nutrition therapy at 100% (no copay, no coinsurance, no deductible) as a part of your preventive care. Some non-grandfathered policies do limit the number of visits for medical nutrition therapy.  In these situations, we will develop care plans that include more visits with our nurse practitioners/physician assistants.

Understanding and Confirming Your Insurance Benefits

It is important that you understand your benefits. Patient liaisons at LifeStyle Medical Center will call your insurance company on your behalf, but many times an insurance carrier will not guarantee the information they provide to us. While we will make every effort to provide you with the most accurate information, please understand if charges are denied by the insurance company, you will be billed directly for the services.

The Affordable Care Act

The Affordable Care Act has significantly increased the preventive services available at no cost to you. To understand if this applies to your insurance plan, it is important to know whether your plan is considered grandfathered or non-grandfathered. Simply put, if you have a plan that existed on or before March 23, 2010, it may be considered grandfathered, and therefore not subject to mandatory coverage of certain preventive services. If you have a non-grandfathered health plan, most insurance plans are required to cover a comprehensive list of preventive services with in-network providers at NO COST TO YOU.

To learn more about grandfathered vs. non-grandfathered plans, visit this relevant HealthCare.gov website page.

To learn more about which preventive services are available to non-grandfathered plans without any copayments, coinsurance or deductibles, visit this relevant HealthCare.gov website page.

Many of the services you will receive at Lifestyle Medical Center are considered preventive services and not subject to copays, coinsurance, or deductibles for non-grandfathered plans.
