I am seeking anything in writing from a legitimate, preferably regulatory source, to support how a provider should document and bill in the following scenario:

Established patient seeing chiropractor/physician for a work related injury and during the same visit, treatment is provided for a completely UNRELATED condition which is separately identifiable (not incidental) and not as a result of the occupational injury.

Some have suggested distinct and separate medical record entries, but since some of the information (PFSH) would be similar for both, documenting twice seems excessive.

The person inquiring of me in regard to this subject is suspecting that a provider may be double dipping.

Thanks folks
