Dyspnea on exertion

  1. Default Dyspnea on exertion
    Medical Coding Books
    When I try to meet medical necessity in the ER I often look at the assesment questions the Dr. answers yes or no. Often, they will say "Dyspnea on exertion." Can I code this as dyspnea even though it's "conditional"?
