Heather Anderson, CPC, COSC
Coder & Biller Representative

Heather entered the medical field with no experience or knowledge of medical coding or billing. After several months of data entry, she became curious about how and why certain codes were assigned and the best practices of reporting diagnoses and surgical procedures. She soon discovered a love of breaking down physician documentation into numerical representations for billing purposes.
