G codes focus on the most important reason for admission

Question: What G-code would be used for initial patient admission into a HHA? Patient is discharged from hospital with CHF exacerbation, new meds. SN does complete assessment, reviews all new and continued medications, medication and disease process teaching, etc., and completes the OASIS, 485, etc.
Lisa says: Assign the G code that reflects what was most important about the visit remembering that the OASIS assessment is not, by itself, billable.
