Thread: Counseling for Risk Reduction

  1. #1

    Default Counseling for Risk Reduction

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone have documentation criteria needed to support billing 99401 - 99412? I work for a family practice and already bill for smoking cessation but am wondering about weight loss counseling. I can't find anything that shows what documentation must be present. Any help would be appreciated.
