This absolutely NOT appropriate. You may never append a dx code to a claim that the patient does not have. That is using a dx code just to make a clim pay and that is intentional fraud. Also you are giving the patient dx that they do not have but their insurance co thinks they do. This will cause issue for the patient with respect to insurance rates, life insurance, pre-existing conditions. This is so wrong!
