    Question Electronic Teaching Attestations

    AAPC: Back to School

    When a resident dictates a discharge and the note is subsequently electronically signed by the attending physician, does the attending also have to add a teaching attestation addendum to be able to bill the discharge??

    Default Attestation needed

    In a teaching hospital the teaching physician must always have an attestation statement on a resident's dictated (or written) note for the service to be billable ... E/M or procedure.
