Thank you.

Do the providers mainly follow documentation per NCD?

Good afternoon.

Does anyone have any experience billing G0447 (face-face behavioral counseling for obesity, 15 minutes) for Medicare patients?

I have reviewed the NCD and MLN article but wondered if anyone utilizes, gets paid, etc;

Thank you.
