Psychiatric HPI

Postby Shoshana » Thu Oct 18, 2018 5:51 pm

I was told or read one time that when a patient is describing a psychiatric illness, the location is a given under HPI because it is mental. Can anyone tell me if this is a true statement or a myth? I have difficulty finding any coding information on psychiatric E & M.
