Avoiding Medicaid Recoupment from the State #1

Always ensure that the doctor signs the service order BEFORE the initial date of service.

Sound silly and obvious? I have had many recoupment actions in which the doctor either (a) failed to date the signature; (b) wrote the date illegibly; (c) the service notes are dated before the service order.

These small details are imperative to a successful Medicaid health care provider and avoiding recoupments from the state.
