People also ask, can you code possible diagnosis for outpatient?
The outpatient reporting rules state: "Do not code diagnoses documented as "probable," "suspected," "questionable," "rule out," or "working diagnosis" or other similar terms indicating uncertainty.
Beside above, what is a rule out diagnosis? A:The phrase “rule out” means that the physician is attempting to discount a particular diagnosis from the list of possible or probable conditions the patient may have. If the physician suspects a particular diagnosis that's what the medical record should indicate.
Then, what is the ICD 10 code for rule out diagnosis?
Can you code borderline diagnosis?
Borderline Diagnosis If the provider documents a "borderline" diagnosis at the time of discharge, the diagnosis is coded as confirmed, unless the classification provides a specific entry (e.g., borderline diabetes). If a borderline condition has a specific index entry in ICD-10-CM, it should be coded as such.
