Can some please tell me what is correct.....I have always known not to code from the past medical history but now I am being told to do so, this is outpatient coding. I was taught to coded ONLY what was pertinent to the visit, if provider did not manager CKD, HTN, DM, in that visit you do not coded it. I tried to look on CMS website for some guidelines so that way I can take back proof that we are not to be doing this. thank you for any help you can give.

If any of the patient's other conditions may affect the complaint or condition addressed during the visit, then those DXs should be added.
