Keith Pendleton, JD (CEO). Keith is a Pennsylvania-licensed attorney and graduate of the Wake Forest University School of Law. Since graduating, he has dedicated his career to helping health care providers on reimbursement issues, largely through educational means. In 1995, he spent 3 years as the operations director of a health care clinic where he gained hands-on experience with accounts management workflow and techniques, averaging a collections rate of 98.4% over a 3-year period of time. Since 1998, he has given hundreds of educational seminars to health care providers nationwide. The seminars have gained recognition as some of the most unprecedented and immediately-useful reimbursement programs offered anywhere in the country. From 2000 to present, Keith has continued to operate ProviderLAW, a web-based subscription program which has been instrumental in solving reimbursement issues which many providers have deemed unsolvable.

Kelli Moore, Clinic Owner. Kelli has been involved with the chiropractic profession for over 15 years. During that time, she has become the co-owner and clinic administrator for two very successful chiropractic clinics in Texas, averaging a reimbursement rate of 98% (after deducting mandatory insurance discounts). As a direct result of her involvement and expertise in coding and collections protocols, Kelli was successful in doubling the net revenue of her first clinic within the first year of assuming responsibilities (patient volume remaining constant). In the past two years, she was successful tripling the net income of her second practice (patient volume remaining constant). Kelli is a certified Chiropractic Assistant through Parker College and National Association of Chiropractic Assistants. She has attended every major insurance seminar over the last 5 years. Based on her experience, she has drafted an insurance “How-To” manual entitled, “The Chiropractic Insurance Bible.” This manual is an exhaustive expose on proper utilization of forms, workflow, and insurance coding in the chiropractic office. Doctors who have utilized the knowledge in this manual have reported doubling their net income within 6 months and have fortified their position against the threat of insurance audits and recoupment. Kelli has served in all major roles in the small health care clinic setting including front desk receptionist, insurance billing officer, and clinic administrator.
