This depends on how your questionaire is worded and how the physician documents his/her review of that patient-completed information.
It also depends on how your carrier considers "duplicating" this information from HPI and ROS.
Some carriers want something OTHER than the HPI listed in the ROS ... could be same system but they want a different problem. For example: CC is bunion right foot
ROS for musculoskeletal is negative for problems with gait or muscle weakness
Some carriers will allow the positive finding for the CC to be also reflected in the ROS - for example: ROS all systems reviewed and negative except as noted in chief complaint and HPI.
I know that's not the definitive answer you'd hoped for, but I hope it helps.
