Insurance

Duke Health contracts with most major health insurance carriers and transplant networks, including the ones listed below. Before scheduling your appointment, we strongly recommend you contact your insurance company to verify that the Duke Health location or provider you plan to visit is included in your network. Your insurance company will also be able to inform you of any co-payments, co–insurances, or deductibles that will be your responsibility. If you proceed in scheduling an appointment and your health insurance benefits do not participate with Duke, your out of pocket liability may be higher. We will contact you regarding your coverage and patient liability. If you are uninsured, learn more about our financial assistance policy.

Below are the plans currently accepted in 2018. There are some changes to the plans accepted beginning January 1, 2019. More information will become available on PlanForDuke.com.

Profile
ABOUT ME

I am a Registered Dietitian and Certified Diabetes Educator with several years of experience in assisting patients with diabetes, obesity, and nutrition-related conditions. I enjoy helping people reach their goals of improved health and quality of life through medical nutrition therapy. I am originally from the Philippines but have lived in North Carolina for almost 30 years, so I consider myself a native now. In my spare time, I enjoy gardening and growing orchids. I also volunteer with various non-profit organizations, sharing my knowledge and expertise to give back to the community.
