Misty Valaer . . .

was not only an ABCD recipient for the 2nd Quarter – she is also our Customer Service Superstar!

“Misty is always willing to teach her coworkers, and she will help work through difficult situations. Misty does a fantastic job working with our Clients and their self-pay balances. Misty works every sliding fee scale that comes through for outpatients, and she spends a huge amount of time ensuring our clients get the best customer service. She is very knowledgeable and is someone that her teammates can count on. Misty deserves the Customer Service Superstar award for the countless hours she spends on the self-pay statements, sliding scales, working closely with the BSAs and patients. She is a wonderful asset to the Mind Springs Health billing team and to the patients of Mind Springs.”

Congratulations to all of the Customer Service Superstar Nominees:
