My question to you would be, how do you know what level it deserves if all you have is a bill? As an auditor you should be looking at the documentation, you should not be auditing from a bill. If you can't get the documentation, then you need to go with what you have and you can't give credit for what's not there. If after you review the documentation you need clarification on something, then you should contact the physician. But remember, "if it's not documented, it wasn't done." Or as one workshop presenter said "Doctos thoughts don't photocopy."
Hope this wa a little help.
