Kelly Willenberg & Associates


Kelly, I want to thank you for the great conference in San Antonio. I can’t wait for conference next year, always a exceptional event. Who knew you could have so much fun learning about Research Billing Compliance. You do a fantastic job, I wouldn’t miss this conference.

– Nancy Lutz, Research Billing Compliance Coordinator
at University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics

I just wanted to take a moment and say “thank you” to Kelly, Bryon and the team that put together the 9th Annual Research Billing Conference in San Antonio this year. It was the best conference to date, and certainly was an historical moment having a Medicare panel take our questions and comments. I haven’t seen that before and I hope that they were encouraged and impressed by the respectful tone with which our group asked a myriad of complex questions. Kelly is already working on getting them to return next year. If you have never attended this conference before, I urge you to consider planning to come to the 10th anniversary conference next year. It is the best conference for networking with research billing professionals across the country. (If you are there, I can network with you too!) Every year, it gets better and better!

The University of Vermont Medical Center

Kelly was hired to review our newly developing Research Billing Program and worked onsite to help train our researchers and staff about Coverage Analysis and how to create them. Her knowledge and enthusiastic presentations were informative and instructive. She has been a valuable resource in helping us create a research billing process and program.

Kelly knows research inside and out.  When I attended her first conference, I had not been in the research field.  I have an accounting background.  I have learned so much from attending her billing conferences along with the many connections I have made through attending these conferences.  Kelly also goes above and beyond to help when you are back at your hospital or office.  Kelly responds to emails when needed.  I also attended Kelly’s Research Billing Boot Camp.  It is amazing the detail you will learn.  I could not do my job as well as I do today without these resources.  It is nice to be connected to a team or research billing and compliance people who are all trying to navigate the complex issues of research  billing compliance.  The Research Compliance Edge Clinical Billing Group forum has also been invaluable to all of us for questions and connecting with one another. Kelly also presented locally at our Research Symposium.  We were able to video her talks and put them on our internal website for those to view who were unable to attend.  By having her at our site, it made our system so much stronger.  It also emphasized the fact that we as a research office were not just trying to make things harder or more complicated, it is the insurance companies and Medicare and OHRP and other government agencies making the rules.  We are just trying to follow them.
