Treatment notes are something that you want to get right from the beginning.
You also want your notes to look professional.
If you are billing a government institution like Medicaid or your billing private insurance they will pick up on your disorganization and give you more scrutiny than you deserve. This is one reason therapists need to stop handwriting notes and move into the digital age.
If you have any suggestions on how you write notes please leave a comment below. Also please let us know of any audit experiences that you have had in the past and what you learned from them.
