SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Just wanted to know if anyone knows of any laws on another dr signing off on your chart without actually seeing the patient because you are not credentialed with the insurance the patient has. I had a Dr sign off on my charts and only performed NCT, autorefractor, and ask CC because I was not credentialed with the insurance companies and she was. I don't think I even had Medicare at that point and I know under some law as long as the Dr has Medicare there is a 1 to 2 month grace period to bill the patient under another Dr's name. I am a licensed optometrist. Any feedback would be helpful! Thanks!
