When the patient is seen for diatary counseling due to diabetes and morbid obesity. Do I code the visit as: Z713,E119,E6601?

Hi,

HCPCS code S9465 and G0447,G0447  can be coded accoding to the above mentioned scenario.

Hope this helps!

I'm sorry, but I am asking in reference to the order of the diagnosis not procedure coding. Should the counseling diagnosis be coded as primary, Z71.3, E11.9, E66.01?
