Well we know tobacco and nicotine increase the risk of fractures, and interfere with the healing process so I would think this is something we can bill... however, do we need to provide preventive care such as Rx for meds (Chantix, etc.) and not just counseling??
I personally do not know the answer - but I think this is an excellent question to raise here!! I'm hoping to see some feedback on this as well!
