, a leading provider of physician billing and coding services is celebrating 35 years of helping physicians leverage their revenue cycle and provide value in their practices.  In 1985, brothers Christopher and Anthony Asterino, CPA opened their doors in Albany, the capital city of New York State.  Albany, known for its rich history, commerce, culture, architecture, and institutions of higher education, is also home to some of the coldest winters in the country, which was one of the reasons the brothers moved west and made Scottsdale, Arizona home base in 1996.

For 35 years the company has built a reputation on their “golden rule” approach to career building, maintaining and enhancing relationships with employees, vendors, physicians, and healthcare organizations across the United States.  In the early years, the company provided a full range of practice management services including accounting, tax preparation, pension design and planning, contracting and credentialing in addition to medical coding and medical billing.  Today, the company provides only medical billing and coding services to 15 different specialties nationwide.

When asked about how the business has evolved over time, CEO Christopher Asterino replied, “in the early years, the need in the marketplace was for our company to provide full practice management services.  If we lacked the skill set, we acquired it so we could service all of our clients’ needs.  The move to Arizona and a much larger market allowed us to reduce our service offerings to just coding and billing because there were others in the marketplace who could fill the practice management need.  This change in focus of our service model allowed us to concentrate solely on ensuring our clients were paid for each and every service they provided.  This became our passion and our unique contractual commitment to our clients, and our adherence to this commitment, has delivered results that have set us apart in a crowded RCM marketplace operating in a rapidly transforming healthcare system.  Our clients are in the practice of medicine, we are in the business of healthcare.  When each party collaborates and stays in their lane, the results are quite extraordinary.”

The company will celebrate with an open house event this fall.  Connect on social media to stay in touch and visit their website to learn more.
