RCD Tip: PCR Task Signed Documentation

Published 01/20/2021

Our Medical Review (MR) team has noticed an increased number of providers in Pre-Claim Review (PCR) who are submitting documentation (plan of care, therapy orders, etc.) that are not signed.

As a reminder, for tasks 1 through 4, a signature is required. Documents submitted without a proper physician signature will result in a non-affirmation.

The plan of care must be signed prior to submitting the PCR request. You must submit the signed plan of care before you file the claim for that 30-day period.

Oral orders must be countersigned and dated by the physician before the home health agency submits the final bill.
