Hi,

Would anyone know if Noridian JF will accept an extended HPI by combining multiple chief complaint elements?

Example: Chief complaint - Patient with headache and stomach pain

"Patient comes in with a headache (location) that has lasted for two weeks (duration). The patient is also experiencing stomach pain on a scale of 1-10 being an 8 (severity). Pepto (modifying factor) seems to calm this down.

I was told at one time that this was acceptable, but it has been a while since I have heard this and could not find anything in my research.

Any help will be appreciated. :)
