SC Obesity Initiative

Speaker: Channell Webster, SC DHHS When: Self Study Course

The ability for Licensed Dietitians in South Carolina to bill and be reimbursed for obesity counseling for Medicaid beneficiaries is quickly approaching.  SCAND has played a pivotal role in identifying Licensed, Registered Dietitians as the preferred providers for this initiative.  Please take the time to enroll in this ground-breaking program to help to change the lives of our patients and to expand the coverage of our profession.

SCAND has worked with SCDHHS to provide you with a Free CEU training webinar to explain the obesity initiative, guide you through the enrollment process, billing practices, and documentation requirements.  It is a 25 minute webinar that can be completed at your convenience.  Please take the time to view to learn more and earn 1 CEU. To view the webinar click here. The password is dhhs.

Once you have completed the webinar, please E-mail Donald Wood at eatrightsc@capconsc.com to take the CEU quiz and to secure your 1 CEU.

 We encourage all LDs to enroll in this service, even if you do not think that you will be providing this service initially. Across the state physicians and health care providers are looking for dietitians in their areas to connect with, so please be sure you enroll so they can find you!

 Important information for LDs enrolling in the obesity initiative:

  • Obtaining an NPI number happens quickly; however enrolling with Medicaid is a longer process.  Please complete your enrollment ASAP in order to be able to see Medicaid participants  when the initiative is officially rolled out.
  • If you currently work in a hospital-based outpatient setting, please begin to speak with your Clinical Manager or billing department to begin to prepare for this process, as it can take some time to have all of the necessary billing procedures in place.
  • After enrolling with Medicaid, please do not begin billing for this service until final approval is given (will be in a separate e-blast).

Please contact Channell Webster, Public Information Coordinator with SCDHHS with any questions about the enrollment process after viewing the webinar.  She can be reached at Channel.Webster@scdhhs.gov or (803)898-1292.
