December 2016 Texas Medicaid Provider Procedures Manual

Medical Transportation Program Handbook : 6 Claims Filing : 6.4 Delegation of Signature Authority

A provider that delegate signatory authority to a member of the office staff or to a billing service remains responsible for the accuracy of all information on a claim submitted for payment. A provider’s employees or a billing service and its employees are equally responsible for any false billings in which they participated or directed.
If the claim is prepared by a billing service or printed by data processing equipment, it is permissible to print “Signature on File” in place of the provider’s signature. When claims are prepared by a billing service, the billing service must obtain and keep a letter on file that is signed by the provider authorizing claim submission.
