Addendum time frame

An addendum to include information about what was done to the patient or any test results should only be added within a reasonable time frame, which is capped at a maximum of 60 days after the encounter. Some organizations enforce shorter limits of 30 days, 14 days, 7 days, etc. Any changes to a medical record beyond this time frame is difficult to justify and is unreasonable to assume the provider could recall specific details about the encounter beyond this time limit.

Hope this helps!
