Billing & Coding Specialist
Missy Weisbarth, has been in the health insurance industry her whole life. It started when her father ran his own health insurance agency out of their home - so since the age of 13 she's been calling insurance companies to obtain benefits and claim statuses.
Coupled with a breadth of experience at the biggest health insurance companies in the country, as well as a large emergency room physician billing center, she has more than nine years of dedicated work in the chiropractic and integrated medical field.
In starting Limitless Consulting Services, Missy wanted to be able to use her expertise to assist chiropractors and other medical professionals with the part of their job they probably dislike the most: insurance, credentialing and billing!
These are three things that Missy absolutely loves doing. She wanted to be able to give small practices “a way out” of all that confusing insurance “stuff,” giving them the opportunity to concentrate their efforts where it matters most: helping other people get well.
