Melissa is the CEO of Mainstream Services, a medical billing company. Most medical bills are paid by insurance companies these days. Melissa’s company specializes in getting the insurance companies to pay healthcare providers the correct reimbursement on a timely basis.

This can also lead to rising costs for everyone.

Small business owners like Melissa Turner who understand the system of health insurance and medical bill payments could help them understand the results of the laws they pass.
Melissa offers a generous referral bonus to anyone who refers her company to their doctor and a great discount off the first month of service for all new clients.
