    Default HPI Elements

    AAPC: Back to School
    This is a follow-up question because I just encountered an Initial
    Preventive as the HPI but during the course of the Physical
    Exam.the physician find an abnormality or a different problem like
    elevated HTN but the patient has a history of HTN.Final assesement
    V70.0 and HTN where the physician wrote a prescription for HTN
    and order Lab.for V70.0.
    My question is can I bill for an additional NEW sick visit
    and what level since I don't have the component in the HPI
    in order to meet the 3 out 3 elements for a new patient?
    Thanks again.
