When a physician dictates in our current system, it comes up as pre-authenticated. Are these billable? I wait for them to be signed before billing them but the question has arisen whether or not they can be billed while in pre-authentication mode. I know the answer but am curious what others say.

I would say no. The provider would need to sign indicating their verification and finalization of the records. Without the signature the records are incomplete and should not be coded.
