    Question H&P's
    Medical Coding Books
    I am a coder for an ASC and we were cited by joint commission for several issues. I want to be perfectly clear on this issue before I bring it to the administrator.

    Does an H&P have to be signed by the physician? Can this be stamped?

    CR 5971 (Transmittal #248) was issued to prohibit the use of stamped signatures. These requirements are intended to apply all providers/suppliers. Stamped signatures are not acceptable on any medical record. Medicare will accept hand written, electronic signatures or facsimiles of original written or electronic signatures.
