June 15, 2019
Sangita Patel, owner of A&U Medical Billing Services, is a certified coder with more than 20 years of experience. She is also currently serving as a member of the advisory board for the Medical Billing and Coding program at AIMS Education. On Saturday, June 15th, Ms. Patel provided a guest lecture to our Medical Billing and Coding weekend students.
Ms. Patel’s guest lecture covered the following topics:
Revenue cycle - verifying patient eligibility, covered benefits, etc.
The benefits of being able to work from home
How to handle and resubmit denied claims
The students were very involved and asked some great questions. Some of the discussions included the types of software used today, and the variety career opportunities that exist in the medical billing and coding field. It was a very informative lecture that benefitted the MBC students greatly.
The Medical Billing and Coding program director, Meenu Nair, felt that it was important for our students to gain some insight into a medical billing career from an expert like Sangita Patel.
AIMS Education appreciates Ms. Patel taking the time to meet with our students, and we look forward to having her back again in the future.
