You have some options depending on who's providing the counseling. If a physician provides, you can code based on time since counseling will be majority of face-to-face encounter. For a nonphysician provider, you can use 97802 for intitial and 97803 for followup visits. For requirements on these codes, see http://www.supercoder.com/articles/articles-alerts/fca/new-rules-beckon-proper-use-of-medical-nutrition-codes/
