In the gastroenterology practice that I work with we do have a nutritionist on staff. She is primarily self pay, because she isn't yet credentialed with the major insurance carriers.
She is able to see Medicare patients and bill insurance, however, Medicare will only pay for nutrition visits for patients with a diagnosis of End stage renal disease or diabetes. And only 3 hours the first year and 2 hours in the 2nd year.
CPT codes we use are 97802 and 97803.
Hope that helps some.
