    Default Signature requirement

    AAPC: Back to School
    If a chart is selected for audit and the record is not signed by the physician or NPP, is this a correctable error? In other words, can the chart be signed after the fact before it is sent to Medicare? Does any special note need to be added to indicate the date the record was signed?
