Paula Digby tells the “Insiders” during Episode 136 about a compliance issue related to new service lines. When Episode 136 begins, Ms Digby answers a questioner who is concerned about the physician copying and pasting documentation from a non-physician into his or her progress notes – does that mean the conditions can be reported? The final concern is from Anonymous, who codes for IRF – how do we report the presence of a Holter monitor?
