Inpatient Chemo Encounter


Richlands, North Carolina
Best answers
When the physician is documenting for a Chemo Encounter, should or should they not being documenting the specific cancer, within thier progress note for that day? I understand that the visit is for Chemo, and that I need to use the V code first, but shouldn't I also have the cancer/neoplasm documented? :confused:
