A physician or health care provider must refer your child to Providence Neurodevelopmental Center for Children for an evaluation with a pediatric dietitian prior to participation in the Healthy 'n Fit program. The provider will also order lab work to measure your child’s blood sugar and cholesterol levels. After we receive this referral, we will contact you to schedule an appointment and register your child with Healthy 'n Fit.
The registration fee for the 10-week session is $250, plus the cost of the required nutrition assessment and lab work. Some insurance plans cover part of these costs. For Providence Health Plan (PHP) members, PHP pays $125 of the registration fee. Please contact your child’s insurance company to see what your coverage includes.
