Thread: Diabetes education on glucometer billable?

    Exclamation Diabetes education on glucometer billable?

    AAPC: Back to School
    When a non-provider trains/educates a pt on the use of a glucometer is this billable? and if so what CPT would I use?

    Thanks in Advance,
    Susan G

    I'm not sure who is doing the education and whether or not they would qualify to bill but you may want to look at code

    98960 Education and training for patient self-management by a qualified, nonphysician health care professional using a standardized curriculum, face-to-face with the patient (could include caregiver/family) each 30 minutes; individual patient
