Hello,
My practice NPs have recently started providing cancer genetic counseling, billed under the NP license. Is there any restriction to the use of Z71.83 code by NPs? I'm asking because I am aware that the CPT code of 96040 medical genetic and genetic counseling services may only be used by medical genetic professionals. This Z code is used with that CPT. Currently I would bill Z71.83 and then the appropriate history or disease code.

Any input appreciated!
