My doctor has a patient that is morbid obese. He is now starting him on a weight loss program with diet and vitamins. He is going to moniter him weekly and we were thinking that it would be ok to bill him a low level office visit for these follow up visits on his weight loss progress.
I was just curious if this is how other offices handles this situation? There might be an issue of him having an exclusion on his insurance for the diagnosis of morbid obesity so this would be a concern of charging his insurance company and it being non covered.
Thanks for any thoughts on billing for this issue.
