We have recently updated to an Electronic Health Record. At times, the physician will perform the full encounter of the patient, but the Physician Assistant is present and is ONLY scribing for the physician. Since the PA is scribing, the author shows under the PA's name, but the physician still co-signs.

My questions is, we should be billing under the physician since he/she is performing the encounter right? BUT, wouldn't the author need to be under the physicians name? Or, since the physician is co-signing, is this okay to bill under the physician?

Please HELP!!

Thank you!
