    Default CR 5971 Signature Stamps

    AAPC: Back to School
    AM I understanding this correctly? This applies to all Medicare medical records, not just hospice, and that signature stamps are not valid on lab slips, test reqs, or any medical records. I keep hearing differing opinions.

    That's my understanding, also.


    "The purpose of this notice is to provide guidance to providers/suppliers and Medicare contractors on the use of stamped signatures. Note that stamped signatures are not acceptable on any medical record."
