Does everyone give credit for cardiomyopathy and CHF separately? My provider is documenting "3C" for his HPI using CAD, CHF and Cardiomyopathy. If he states all are stable, then knowing whether to count one or both is the difference between a 99213 and 99214.
Is CHF a type of cardiomyopathy or are they 2 separate issues? Any insight is appreciated!
