After reading many articles by Christine Taxin, I emailed her to see if we could talk about cross-coding. Her knowledge is so vast that there are not enough hours in the day to glean from her. We speak regularly which is amazing that she remembers so many people and to hear her lecture is something that ANY dentist, specialty or general, NEED to hear. With her help, I have secured thousands of dollars through medical billing for our practice. I would highly recommend Christine whether it is her articles, books, or lectures to anyone that wants to begin dental-medical cross coding.

To whom it may concern,
Christine Taxin has been working with my students for three years. Her courses introduce proper billing techniques stated by the AGD, which provides them with how to understand the basic use of a coding book, the review process and benefits process for established codes. Her skills have given my students the ability to understand up coding, down coding x-ray rules and more. She has been working with the students that will be taking the boards so they are able to answer the questions asked with confidence and skill.
Her class is well attended and popular since she is able to bring real world experience to the students so they can truly understand the concept of why we have to document everything, match the code to documentation and relay to the patient the type of plan they haves so everyone is abiding by the laws set up by insurance companies if they are participating or nonparticipating.
There are many new rules with electronic billing and charts so she is also able to bring that to the students who will be on their own when most of these laws will be enforced.
She has also been asked to work with the Alumni Association and will be providing classes to my students and at theRosenthalCenterthis year.
