how do you code a patient how came in with elevated BP but the doctor is not calling it gestational hypertension yet. she sent the patient home to do a 24 hour urine test. should I just append the R03.0 elevated BP?

I've been coding those scenarios as O99.89, R03.0. But I can't say with a 100% certainty that I'm right. Hopefully others will share their input.
