Code Also

The instructions in Guidelines: A 'code also' note alerts the coder that more than one code may be required to fully describe the condition. the sequencing depends on the circumstances of the encounter, Factors that may determine sequencing include severity and reason for the encounter.'

If the patient has this diagnosis then yes, I would add it. But it is not mandatory, no.
