Ep 35: Billing for Point of Service (POS) Documentation

Billing for Point of Service (POS) Documentation

Questions around billing are ones I get asked quite often and like any other type of billing, billing  for point of service documentation can be tricky to navigate. The main reason I find that people want to include their documentation or chart review time in their billable time is not that they are purposely trying to defraud someone or do something illegal, but it’s typically because they just want their job to recognize the work they did. That’s why this week on The Amplify OT Podcast, I am talking about billing for point of service (or POS) documentation!
