    I know the rule, "If it's not documented, it didn't happen"..... is that also true for a signature or e-signature? If a doctor uses an an EMR, and it is obvious that it is his/her chart note, but there is no e-signature.... by law are you allowed to bill without the signature?

    Can anyone help me with this one?

    This link should help. It also refers you to the Internet Only Manual where you can find all the particulars.
