Robert Tessier earned his Master of Public Health (MPH) degree at UNC in Chapel Hill. Initially, most clients were radiology groups, including large academic medical centers such as the University of Miami.
In 1982, he was retained by the Pathology Chair at Cornell/New York Hospital to establish the first private practice in NYC and was also engaged to set up fee for service at Yale Pathology. On behalf of the CT Society of Pathologists, Bob coordinated initial third party negotiations. Today, he actively manages many successful pathology groups.
His consulting focus is hospital support for Part A services and negotiates these payments both for pathologists and hospital systems. Bob has also participated in more than 200 third party contracts.
Under his direction, creative deals have been developed with physician office labs that allow pathologists to bill globally. By setting up a separate entity, clients have been able to maximize income for PCCP billing. Bob is also retained by hospitals to study the fair market value of technical services and routinely performs billing system audits for Pathologists.
An MBA with a specialization in Healthcare Administration, Josh Yelen has worked in physician practice management and hospital administration, and has spent the last 10 years in academic healthcare administration with a focus in Laboratory and IT operations and finance. He currently serves as the Vice Chair for Administration in the Department of Pathology at the University of Miami School of Medicine.
