Until recently, Medicare (CMS) had restricted what contribution a medical student’s documentation can have toward an attending physician’s permanent record. That position has now changed. This change gives physicians a chance to both evaluate how they might use student documentation, but also to re-evaluate that the documentation they are using from interns, residents and fellows is compliant.
Join this session, with medical consultant Jill Young, CPC, CEDC, CIMC to learn who needs to be in attendance during the interview with the patient, what can the student document, and what the attending physician needs to document. You will learn what information needs to go on a claim form.
With this session, you will be able to include medical student documentation as part of a patient’s permanent medical record, when the attending physician compliantly documents their portion of the encounter.
This session will teach you:
