Paula Digby speaks to the “Insiders” portion on the topic of  “refuse to provide a patient a copy of their medical records?” During Episode 124, the first question concerns covid toes, is this a sequella? An Anonymous questioner is new to the Ambulatory Surgical Center and wonders whether it is appropriate to include A4550 and 99070 on most claims. The final question comes from a hospital where staff wonders whether an adult mentally ill woman’s mother can provide consent for her daughter to have a sterilization procedure paid by Medicaid.
