  1. I couldn’t have said it better myself. I have owned a medical billing company for 18 years and your first point, “never take the shortcut” is key. As we all know, medical coding and billing is very precise and one diget in a procedure can mean the difference between a claim paid or a claim denied. One diget in a diagnosis code can mean the difference between a benign tumor and a malignant one. We have a huge responsibility to our physicians and patients.

    Being of service without expecting anything in return is also great advice. The employees that I have kept on over the years always put fourth their best effort, stayed late if they needed to and were never idle. As an employer, these employees save me money and, therefore, are highly rewarded.
