The best CPT code for the given scenario would be (group education program): 99078
For individual patient education use code from E/M section (based upon the nature of services)
*******
There could be several of the Dx which can qualify for the CPT 99078 (depending upon the nature of education and patient disease). The general Dx codes would be from V60-V69, smoking cessation(305.xx) etc.
