Default Step 2 CS Question - Terminally Ill patients

Hi guys,

Can someone please tell me if we are supposed to write D/Ds for a terminally ill patient? We technically already know what he's/she's suffering from, so do we still have to write anything? Similarly, what if a patient is coming in for a check-up or drug refill, e.g. hypertension follow-up, diabetes drug refill? We already know the diagnosis of these patients, so is there any need to list additional D/Ds? Thanks in advance for your help!
