What is the patient getting educated on? And who is providing the education?

Like for a back injury, we give them a back excerise sheet and explain it to them. The doctor or the np is giving the education.

Depends on the education provided and it's context:


99071 Educational supplies, such as books, tapes, and pamphlets, provided by the physician for the patient's education at cost to physician

99078 Physician educational services rendered to patients in a group setting (eg, prenatal, obesity, or diabetic instructions)

98960 Education and training for patient self-management by a qualified, nonphysician health care professional using a standardized curriculum, face-to-face with the patient (could include caregiver/family) each 30 minutes; individual patient

98961 Education and training for patient self-management by a qualified, nonphysician health care professional using a standardized curriculum, face-to-face with the patient (could include caregiver/family) each 30 minutes; 2-4 patients

98962 Education and training for patient self-management by a qualified, nonphysician health care professional using a standardized curriculum, face-to-face with the patient (could include caregiver/family) each 30 minutes; 5-8 patients

Default Diabetic education provided by NP

In these code selections below, is a NP considered non-physician when working under the supervision of MD?

98960 Education and training for patient self-management by a qualified, nonphysician health care professional using a standardized curriculum, face-to-face with the patient (could include caregiver/family) each 30 minutes; individual patient

98961 Education and training for patient self-management by a qualified, nonphysician health care professional using a standardized curriculum, face-to-face with the patient (could include caregiver/family) each 30 minutes; 2-4 patients

98962 Education and training for patient self-management by a qualified, nonphysician health care professional using a standardized curriculum, face-to-face with the patient (could include caregiver/family) each 30 minutes; 5-8 patients

I have a NP provider suggesting we bill 99214 based off 30 time face to face -- but this is not counseling and coordination of care, this is education... Can Someone provide some guidance?
