How can I be sure notes can not be submitted without a valid Authorization?

There are 3 items that must work in unison for restrictions to be properly administered. Follow the images below to check your settings for the Service Code, Authorization and Note Preferences.

1. Make sure that the Service Code Requires an Authorization. If it does not, The system will allow it no matter what. (Think Non-Billable Notes)
2. Check these items in the Authorization itself. The Status must be Approved and the Validation must be enforced.
3. In Managers > Preferences > Note Preferences insure Allow Notes is UNCHECKED. Checking this box will allow note without a valid Auth no matter what you’ve done with Auths or Services
