    Default Nutrition services=97802-97804

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hi All,
    1.)Can our Internal Medicine Providers use these codes?
    2.)OR only Licensed Dieticians is allowed?
    3.)And if these services are provided with a sick visit by the doctors and the dietitian with the nutrition services on the same day of service do we have to add modifier 25?
    4.)If we could bill for these services by itself?
    5.)Do these Dietitians needed to be credentialed with the Insurances?
    6.)Lastly where we could asked for more INFO for these services?

    Pls.HELP and Thanks
