Preventative services with AWV

    Default Preventative services with AWV
    New Call-to-action
    When a provider does a Medicare Annual Wellness visit, does any also charge for the smoking cessation, obesity counseling or any of the other preventative services if done?
    I do not find a CCI edit other than with the depression screening but I know that even if there is not a CCI edit, it does not mean you can always bill the service with it. Counseling is a huge part of the annual wellness visit.
    Can anyone tell me what they do in their practice?
