About Your Instructor...

Joy Newby has developed a true following among ophthalmology office managers, insurance billing staff and physicians in a number of Midwestern states.  She is president of Newby Consulting, Inc., a practice management consulting firm.  Ms. Newby is a recognized expert in Medicare coding -- particularly ophthalmology, and she serves a number state ophthalmology societies, as well as numerous individual physician practices and medical centers.

Joy also serves as an ongoing Medicare and coding consultant for KSEPS and manages our coding help desk.  Through this program, KSEPS members are able to get their coding questions answered by submitting a "help form."  A personalized answer will be provided, usually within a few days.
