My passion for innovation and creativity has been a solid addition to my provider contracting and billing expertise. I have been working as a medical billing professional for over 7 years and specialize in provider contracting and start up knowledge for mid-sized practices in multiple states. Prior to my medical billing career, I acquired a BA in Public Relations and Marketing. Whether you are a new provider to the clinical world or a seasoned professional with years of experience, I truly enjoy growing clinical practices and being a professional consultant for adding insurance panels, practice locations and identifying licensing requirements to keep providers successfully paneled with commercial and state insurance plans.
My name is Kristen Wozniak. I wanted to formally introduce myself to you as it has been asked that I take over posting and filing your claims for your clients. I have been doing medical insurance and billing for 17 years and currently am working at Washington University as a senior float staff assigned to different financial areas depending on need and flow. I have several years of experience with multiple payors for different fields within the medical industry from Home Health billing, Hospice Billing as well as medical billing both within a facility setting and within private practice. I also am a mom to a precocious 2 year old son named Tristan. I hope to speak to you soon regarding any issues you are experiencing with your accounts. I have been with SM Coding and Billing since 2017.
