    Default Cpt 97802-97804

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anyone know if these codes can ONLY be submitted by a Dietician or Nutritionist? I can't seem to find anything stating these can't be used by a physician or NP...

    There's a footnote in CPT:

    "(For medical nutrition therapy assessment and/or intervention performed by a physician, see Evaluation and Management or Preventive Medicine service codes)"
