So I have a patient who was newly diagnosed with diabetes and during his office visit the doctor did one-on-one "insulin training" with the patient.
Does anyone know the appropriate CPT code for this?
And also, would I use a counseling ICD-9 code to link that CPT code to? Or just link it to the diabetes code?

no there is no code for the physician to give training to the patient on insulin administration. The is a HCPC II code for diabetic counseling, but it will be bundled with the E&M and it may not be accepted by all payers. there is a code (98960) for education and training for patient self management but it is for non physician/practicioner use only and will bundle into the ov with most carriers. I know of no other code that could be used and it really is part of the plan of care which is part of the E&M.
