I have a physician who is turning in discharge summaries for patients who are acutely discharged from the rehab hospital for one reason or another (like chest pain, LOC). The problem is, he's dictating these around a month later, and when I go into the patient's medical record and look at the progress notes, I don't see any documentation of the physician actually seeing the patient that day. I'm thinking this dictation is just a requirement of the Rehab Hospital because our physicians are usually the admitting doctors. Am I right to tell this physician that there is no way we can bill for these discharges? I just want some back up on this answer...thanks!!
