They are called physician notes for a reason! A biller is never ever to add or subtract information from a physician note regardless of whether he signs it later. The biller has no way to 100% know what items to check. This is not a good practice at all. The provider is the one that makes amendments to his/her own note. If a gap is detected by the coder/biller then the documentation should go back to the provider for amendment.
