Coding and Billing is the one thing besides patient care that I have a true passion for. I can see things from all sides, and this assures that

1. Things are coded correctly and accurately to ensure proper payment
2. Physicians receive reimbursement for what they have done
3. Patients have someone on their side to help deal with their insurance companies
4. I do not take NO for an answer, as a lot of times, claims are denied just to see if someone will take the time to pick up the phone or appeal.
5. I get to know the insurance policies inside and out to assure that denials are minimal to none.
