    AAPC: Back to School
    For codes G0108 and G0109 which is being provided by a Certified Nutritional Dietitian does the provider have to be present in the office as the education/training is taking place?

    Is the Certified Dietitian considered a qualified nonphysician health care professional for Diabetic education and training.

    My advance thanks for your responses.

    a registered dietician is not considered a NPP by CMS.

    the dietician can obtain an NPI and if accredited can bill under his/her own NPI number and assign the payments to the practice.

    hope this helps
