Fever as Symptom


Best answers
I have a chart where the provider says the patient has flu-like symptoms so I am coding the actual signs and symptoms- body aches, nausea, cough, pharyngitis....My problem is the fever. It says tactile fever and doesn't say what the temp was or if the patient even measured it. The temp in the office is normal. Would I code the fever?
