Physicians themselves should be concerned with copy-and-paste documentation not only because it affects clinical care but also because it can affect proper evaluation/management (E/M) code assignment, says Jacqueline Thelian, CPC, CPC-I, CEO of Medco Consultants, who notes that physicians frequently copy and paste the review of systems and exam portions of a visit without thinking about whether it might raise a red flag for an auditor.
"When we code it out, usually the history and physical meet higher criteria but the medical decision making doesn't," she says. "Clients will ask us to downcode based on the medical decision making, which is the right thing to do." In its work plan, the OIG said it will monitor potentially inappropriate E/M payments because "Medicare contractors have noted an increased frequency of medical records with identical documentation across services. This identical documentation doesn't meet medical necessity criteria, Thelian says. When providing physician education, Thelian focuses on medical necessity and accuracy. "I tell them, 'Write your note the way you would have to defend it at an ALJ [administrative law judge] hearing,'" she says. "It's cut and pasted," Thelian says. "You get conflicting information within the note itself." She notes that coders in a physician practice setting may want to consider accessing the audit trail when coding. "We've always been detectives, and we question the integrity of the data," she says.
