    Does the doctor document any sort of treatment or management for the list of conditions that he/she names in the the encounter? Or is it just a laundry list of DXs? If the condition is documented with treatment/management, yes, you code them accompanied with the correct cpt code. If there is no management listed, you refrain from coding it.

    Here is another recent thread that basically talks about the same thing.

    Hope this helps.
