Welcome to the Paint The Medical Picture Podcast, created and hosted by Sonal Patel, CPMA, CPC, CMC, ICD-10-CM.

Thanks to all of you for making this a Top 15 Podcast for 2 Years:

Sonal’s 7th Season has started and Episode 3 features a special Newsworthy return guest, Dr. John Zelem. We discuss his rich insights on why we need to fight back and “level the playing field” when it comes to Medicare Advantage Organizations denying medically necessary patient care and services.

Trusty Tip features Sonal’s continued focus on Medicare Advantage plans and her compliance recommendations.

Spark inspires us all to reflect on purpose and impact based on the inspirational words of Estée Lauder.
