According to the Medicare Program Integrity Manual, Chapter 3, Section 4.1.1B, rubber stamps are not secure and there are consequences if a provider continues to use them.
I would suggest you check with the FI for your area as well as your Carrier or MAC. The Georgia FI will not accept rubber stamps as a signature on therapy certifications. "Rubber signature stamps are not acceptable as physiciansâ€™ certification/recertification on therapy claims nor are they acceptable even if they are initialed by the physician."
