A homecare patient has Parkinson's. Physical therapy is called in for 'weakness' and 'pain'. Wouldn't I just use Parkinson's (G20) since those things are integral to this disease?


  • Unless the doctor stated the weakness and pain has a different underlying cause, I would assume they're related...

  • Thank you.

  • Yes, only Parkinson's, because the manifestation codes of an illness should not be coded.
