Can we use the therapy progress notes and/or the plan of care documentation without the Physician or Nurse Practitioner signature to code from for Medicare claims?

Answer: Yes, you may use the therapist intervention notes to help support your codes. You are allowed to do that for Medicare purposes. Make sure that the physician is informed on the therapist activities and you will still need to forward those notes to the physician at some point.
