Prehab question

Best answers
If a patient is seen for a prehab assessment prior to surgery for a Total Knee Rplacement due to osteoarthritis of the left knee, when doing a PT eval for the prehab appt, would the Medical dx (osteoarthritis and/or TKA) need to flow over to the claim along with a treating dx (pain/stiffnesss for example) or is pain and stiffness sufficient on the claim for prehab?
