We have this incident happen often, and as auditors it is often unclear from documentation who saw the patient. In this case, the NP indicates the physician saw the patient and performed physical and mdm. So, the NP should follow scribe guidelines and indicate he/she acted as scribe. The physician should indicate he/she read and agrees with the note dictated by the NP and sign. This should be billed by the MD.
