Title: Doc Signature on Billing Log?
Post by: Christy on January 30, 2013, 02:24:25 PM
I want to include a statement signed by the docs on my billing log....what do y'all think of this?

"I certify that the services reported above were furnished as stated and I give permission to ABC Medical Billing to submit claims for these services to the appropriate insurance carriers. I cerify that I maintain the patient's/policyholder's signature authorizing  the submission of medical claims."   

It's covered in my contract, but I thought safe to also have on the logs each week?   

thoughts? opinions?

thanks! :)

Oh Ok, like a daysheet,   Sure I don't see why you couldn't. Just a note about this part:

I require the patients authorization for assignment to go in my records as it is a source document, it's on our patient information forms, so I think I would want to have that if I were you as part of your record.
