BMI Question

  1. #1
    Default BMI Question
    Medical Coding Books
    If the weight is documented, the height is documented, but no BMI is documented, being that the weight and height is all you need to calculate the BMI, can I code for the BMI?

  2. Default Bmi
    No. You cannot take BMI code in your scenorio unless otherwise your provider instructed.

    But you can verify the BMI value with use of height and weight values.
