It was an in thing about 8 years ago for all children on Medicaid in Florida to be followed by a CDE. There was a good amount of money to be made. 4 professionals can be a CDE. DR Pharmacist Nurse and RD.
It started out to be paid 125.00 for a 2 hour visit. It dropped to 25.00 for a 2 hour visit, plus all the paperwork. Also you must retest every 4 years, no recert by continuing EDucation.
I got cold because if you do not teach patients at least 20 hours a week, you no longer requalify. Also teaching peers does not qualify for recert hours.
Been there, done that, got the tee shirt
