Let's say this same pt is been seen for an acute problem such as bronchitis and the provide prescribes meds for that issue, I would expect/hope to see the dx of bronchitis in the a/p since this what the pt was been seen for.
You can always look at CMS website or your local carrier website for further information on reporting the G code as well. I am not at work and don't have access to that link on hand but they have had teleconferences regarding this as well.
Hope this helps.
