As a Registered Dietitian, I don't often get to work with insurance, due to the fact that nutrition services are rarely covered by any form of insurance. How frustrating!
(Personally, I will write up a "super-bill" for you to submit to your insurance in hopes of getting reimbursement for nutrition services. I also take CenCal Health Insurance.)
Certain insurances, or certain levels of "illness" may get you full or partial coverage for nutrition counseling/Medical Nutrition Therapy by a RD (not just any "nutritionist").
Anyway, I have found a few articles by other websites/authors that may help you in your quest to get covered for services related to an eating disorder... good luck!!
P.S.- if anyone has more tips on getting reimbursement, please post in comments or e-mail me!
