During the “Insiders” portion of Episode 132, Ms Digby describes morbid obesity as she guides the “Insiders” through the various definitions and perspectives on it.  She mentions a White Paper on this topic which you can download here.

Access the reference from NIH here.

During the live call she answers a concern about billing for a visit documented by a medical student in conjunction with the NP; is it billed as the NP? Our final question deals with an interrupted colonoscopy; should POS (place of service) be the clinic or the hospital to which the patient was taken?
