Documentation still counts – Retina Specialists

In the COVID-19 pandemic, one old rule still applies: If you didn’t write it down, you didn’t do it.

The COVID-19 pandemic has suspended almost all normal medical operations, both from the practice side and the insurance payer side.  Some rules have been waived and special billing codes issued.

The crisis should not, however, cause you to ignore documentation guidelines. You need to continue to document correctly for the level of service you’re billing. Avoiding scrutiny and adverse audit findings is important, regardless of external considerations. Though adding stress to your day isn’t my intent, it’s the wise person who recognizes threats and responds appropriately.
