Physician Referral and Insurance Reimbursement

A physician referral may be necessary for some dietitian services. The referral provides the dietitian with the medical background information needed to help plan the counseling session and ensure you receive the unique attention you require to meet your needs. Often, a physician referral may also be necessary to have the counseling covered by your insurance.

You may download a physician order form here. Completed forms may be emailed to gethealthy@tanner.org or faxed to 770-812-5776.
