Since joining the firm in 2011, Becky has been instrumental in helping providers across the country with Medicaid eligibility and reimbursement, successfully recovering millions of dollars annually in revenue. Becky is widely acknowledged as a Medicaid expert within the long-term care industry across several states in the Southeast region. She conducts onsite audits and provides education to our clients on financial best practices and Medicaid policies to give provider the tools they need to improve their cash velocity that allows them to better serve those they care for.
