    Unhappy Toenail clippings

    AAPC: Back to School
    We have a foot care clinic, if the toenail clippings are done by an LVN are we allowed to bill for this service?

    What type of documentation is needed?

    What if the physician comes behind the LVN adds his documentation on signs off on the note?

    Please help this is new to me.

    I work for a mobile DPM, his MA normally clips the toenails, and he signs off and prepares his medical notes to bill the insurance.
