Laureen has over 20 years of experience in the healthcare field. She graduated as an Occupational Therapist in 2006 and before long was running a successful therapy practice which did over 1.6 million in billing per year with a less than .06% rejection rate. Once Medicare changed how rehab companies were reimbursed this business was closed and Laureen eventually started a new company dedicated to teaching Medical Billing and Coding. This business was eventually sold and is now run by the AAPC as part of their online course offerings.
She founded the Southern Jersey Chapter of the AAPC and also served on the AAPC National Advisory board from 2003 – 2006 in addition to being a consulting editor for several “Coding Alert” publications for the Coding Institute.
