Thread: Date of Service and Date of signature

    Default Date of Service and Date of signature

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have an office note with a 3/5/09 DOS and an electronic signature of 3/8/10. Is it acceptable to have a signature 1 year after the office visit.

    thank you

    Default Better Late than Never

    Well, better late than never ... but you can't bill it as it's past timely filing.
