    Default Requirements for a Physician Order

    Promo: Code Books
    Can anyone direct me to the Medicare citation or Medicare regulation that gives the required elements of a physician's order for outpatient services.

    In other words, where does it say that a physician's order requires a diagnosis?

    Thank you.
