My name is Kateryna Patskovska, CPB, AAPC Approved Instructor. I originally started in healthcare back in 2007, reviewing prior authorization requests for PT/OT. Since 2015, I worked with various physicians in several different specialties (ex. orthopedics, general surgery, allergy/Asthma, ENT, etc) Although, I was involved in medical billing and coding since Jan of 2015, I officially received my CPB certificate in 2019 and my AAPC Approved Instructor Certificate in 2021. Sometimes, I present for AAPC local Chapters or AMBA; as well as sometimes publishing articles for AAPC HBM Magazine (ex. Genetic Testing Trends). My favorite part of medical billing and coding is denial management. I love to research, contacting payers and file successful appeals. There is a misconception that when you are a medical biller you do not work with codes or do coding. That is just NOT true! Medical Billing and Coding go hand in hand with each other. Thy are both integral parts of RCM Process. Join me on your way of obtaining AAPC certification and have a rewarding career !
