    Default medicare screening for obesity
    Medical Coding Books
    I received and email today from center of medicare and medicaid that as of 12/2/2011 they will cover screening for obesity with bmi 30 or greater with ntensive behavioral therapy. The way I read it only md's, and practicioners could provided this service, but to me, Iwould think licensed couselors should, has anyone else heard anything about this topic and could elaborate on it. Thanks
