    Question nutritionist billing HELP

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does the following scenario sound appropriate to bill?

    A "nutritionist" (certified by Medigenic) will see our pain specialist's patients for an hour appointment to counsel on life style and nutrition. The physician will then meet with the patient for 15 minutes. Can he bill an E/M code for the entire 75 minutes?

    no the physician can only bill for the time they are face to face with the patient.
