What do you mean by the physciain "billed" for hyperkalemia? Is that the only dx the patient had? If he was billing a subsequent hospital visit, the "resolved" dx of hyperkalemia would figure into his MDM for the E/M level - established problem, stable or improved for 1 point. This would be added up with any other dx he is treating to come up with the number of diagnoses/treatment options. If this is all the patient was in the hospital for, then I would assume he would be discharged.
