BC/BS-physician signature

edited May 2016 in HIM Talk Archive
Recently via a BC/BS documentation and coding accuracy review for
educational purposes the findings noted that "signature guidelines were
not met". After speaking with them further they are looking for the
provider's name to appear somewhere in a legible format on the
documentation . I was told that we could also do a signature log, etc.
They noted they would suggest this for anytime we provide copies for an
audit to any third party payer. Has anyone devised their own type of
form as a cover sheet or are you submitting what we use to term as
"provider signature on file" forms for Joint Commission? Thanks
