Medical Records Amendments

Palmetto GBA, the Jurisdiction 1 Medicare Administrative Contractor, has published a great article on Medical Record Amendments.  We get a lot of questions about these amendments, and there's very little in writing about them.  The Palmetto article is consistent with what CMS has told Medicare Advantage plans on conference calls--that these amendments should be rare, and should be done within a few days of the original medical record entry.

You can read the article here.
