I am coding outpatient clinics
you have an admitting dx and than a primary/principle and secondaries.
my question is do you always bring down the admitting/chief complaint unless he finds something. if he finds something i assume you use that code but what about the admitting, what do i do with that. i guess it goes away if he found something but if nothing really found you put the ADX as your PDX am i correct?

thank you
