Patrice Morin-Resch

Chief Operating Officer (COO)
Physicians Fee Analytics

Patrice Morin-Resch is an author, teacher, usual and customary fees analyst, and medical coding and reimbursement expert with over 30 years of experience.

Ms. Morin-Resch began her profession as an editor of the CPT book for the AMA and answered literally thousands of questions on medical coding and the proper use of the codes found in the CPT book. From there, her career advanced to teaching over 35,000 people both in private and open seminars through the DoD, various insurance companies (both health insurers and vehicle insurers), medical associations (e.g., Minnesota Medical, Texas Medical and Minnesota Hospital, ASOA), CPA firms, private practices and clinics as well as to publishing how-to books on medical coding.

Ms. Morin-Resch now maintains over 50 copyrights for books on medical coding. Her primary text, cp "Teach" Expert Coding Made Easy! has been awarded both the esteemed McGuffey (2011) and Texty (2013) awards through the Text and Academic Authors Association.

In 2012, Body Works, a book she co-authored with John Brady, M.D., Ph.D., was granted the prestigious Ben Franklin Award through the Independent Book Publishers Association.

As a distinguished author in her field, Ms. Morin-Resch was appointed to the TAA Council of Fellows, an honor held by fewer than 50 people worldwide. Because of the fact that Ms. Morin-Resch is primarily a teacher, she is skilled at breaking down the subject of coding in a way that makes it easy to comprehend. She has helped lawyers, doctors, jurors, and judges understand the CPT rules in such a way that they understand the facts of the case and are able to make sound decisions/rulings.

Ms. Morin-Resch maintains her CPC, CMCS, CHCI and CPMA* certifications through the AAPC and PAHCS and is an active member in both groups. She is fluent in both English and Spanish. (* The CPMA certification is held by only 3% of all members of the AAPC.)
