Medicare and Obesity

    I am going to be educating my providers on what Medicare is requiring for the new benefit for screening/therapy with obese patients. (I am under Noridian) I understand what they find necessary but does anyone know how they want it reported? Should I advise to use the 99401-99404 codes or 992xx codes? The verbage leads me to use the 994xx codes.

    Any input is appreciated.
    Thanks
