Welcome to Coding Advantage
Coding Advantage, LLC started with Sonda teaching the Certified Professional Coder (CPC) classes at night in a local hospital in 2013. The company grew organically through providing additional certification courses for practice management and medical auditing. Year after year we grew from a one-person company to over 30 dedicated team members from around the US performing coding, billing, auditing,
and compliance support services.
We have experience with many specialties, but have special expertise with functional medicine and behavioral health providers. Our company is responsible for many organizations’ bottom line, providing billing services to both one-provider practices, as well as organizations with over 200 providers. We take ownership over our work and partner closely with our clients to make sure they get the reimbursement they deserve through compliant, sound billing services.

Coding Advantage, LLC
With more than 30 years of experience in healthcare, my expertise includes comprehensive knowledge of ICD10 and CPT coding concepts, documentation and training, compliance, and healthcare reimbursement methodology. My experience comes from working in a variety of positions both as an outside consultant and as a professional within hospital-owned and private medical practices.
I hold extensive experience with review and correct application of various healthcare regulations. I currently hold many nationally recognized certifications in coding, billing, auditing, and compliance and have also
served as an instructor for ICD-10 and Advanced Coding at Lakeland Community College in Kirtland, Ohio.
Speaking and Consulting are my two favorite things to do!! I love when we can get a community of people together to discuss coding, billing, and documentation!! I really love to get a crowd engaged and laughing while learning things that contribute to an increase in revenue! Humor and dedication to continual learning are essential in running a profitable healthcare organization whether your practice is medical or behavioral health. Whether there are 3 people, 300 or 3000, I’m speaking to, the more engaged I can get the attendees the better!
Speaking engagements can be provided virtual or in person. Although in person will engage your
attendees a bit more than virtual, I promise I can make your virtual meetings or conference just as successful!! I’ve also been a guest on healthcare related podcasts and welcome those opportunities if it is a good fit. I can be booked for speaking engagements for all aspects of the business side of medicine and behavioral health.
Healthcare organizations everywhere regardless of specialty should invest time in understanding the business side of medicine. It can be daunting to find the right consultant. I’ve invested thousands of hours with providers shedding light on how to increase profitability while remaining compliant. I am often asked to consult with Ohio Medicaid, Medicaid MCOs, and other healthcare associations to provide guidance and clarity to coding and documentation guidelines.

Sonda has worked with our organization since the behavioral health redesign in 2017. I do not think we could have navigated that redesign as successfully and seamlessly without her knowledge, guidance, and willingness to get answers from the right people, even at the state level. Since then, she has become an integral part of our team. She is absolutely an expert in the behavioral health billing world, and we feel fortunate to have her working with us.
-Carol Martin, CFO Stella Maris
After consulting with Sonda I always felt more sure-footed and equipped in knowing what next steps were needed. Sonda not only provides answers, but she teaches you where to go and how to research on your own when seeking clarification or direction on issues. Sonda is one of the best consultants I have had the pleasure of working with and I would recommend her with no hesitation.
– Patti Webb interim CEO Center for Addiction Treatment
Sonda has been instrumental in my ability to navigate relationships with billers and the payer system for years. Between Group Medical Visits, Chronic Care Management, and Remote Patient Monitoring - Sonda has been my go-to and has educated me on best practices to position practitioners to win financially while their patients improve outcomes through greater access to care. I often refer to her as “The Oracle of Insurance” and would recommend her to anyone hoping to scale, optimize, or niche their practice.
