If a patient is referred for PT only who is morbid obese and has COPD, oxygen use, chronic anemia, SOB, OSA with CPAP, bipolar/schizo, dyslipidemia and acute respiratory failure... Do we code all these as well even though the patient is only ordered to be seen by PT.


  • code what is likely to impact the POC. Anything respiratory related would impact the poc bc it would be a barrier for endurance and exercise tolerance. bipolar/schizo I would say yes bc the mental status will impact the patient's compliance to the poc. dyslipidemia do not code. it does not apply to poc.
