11.16.2012 Weight Assessment and Counseling for Nutrition and Physical Activity for Children/Adolescents For the Counseling for Nutrition and Counseling for Physical Activity indicators, do educational materials sent to members via mail or e-mail count toward the numerators?

No. The intent of the measure is to identify instances where a member received counseling for nutrition and physical activity; therefore, educational materials sent via mail or e-mail do not indicate that counseling occurred. The intent of including "member received educational materials" in the measure specifications is to allow for occasions where a provider gave educational materials to a patient during a face-to-face visit.
