Lynnette | Our Staff | STATMedCare Payor and Physician Enrollment and CredentialingLynnette Colon, Account Manager

Lynnette joined the STAT MedCare team in 2020 bringing extensive knowledge in the healthcare administration career field. She began her career in a small OB-GYN practice, then transferred over to a level II Trauma Center in Jersey City. Throughout the years, Lynnette gained a lot of experience and learned real world knowledge which cannot be taught in a classroom. Nonetheless, her ambition and drive led her to pursue a Bachelor of Arts, Majoring in Sociology/Anthropology – Grad Prep. Her work experience taught her how to manage and deescalate potentially problematic occurrences in a professional manner and environment. More importantly she learned the difference between credentialing and provider enrollment. While the words may seem synonyms, they are not. The roles for provider enrollment and credentialing differ, as does the responsibilities of each role.
Lynnette takes pride in the work she produces and is extremely meticulous when reviewing any application or provider files to be submitted for committee. Anyone who has worked in this field cannot stress the importance of meeting and/or exceeding the criteria set forth by the directive of management. However, it would be amiss to oversight the importance of inclusivity of all team members, as we are only as strong as our weakest link. It is important to lead by example and not alone on directive. With that said, she would like to ensure all my team members are kept in the loop with more than enough time to meet any deadlines set forth by management or the client, provided the request is feasible.
Finally, it is imperative to mention her ability to negotiate special rates for CPT codes which are not typically included in a standard physician agreement, as a result the client earned more money for every patient treated. Also, since Lynette has been working in this industry for approximately 10 years, she has networked with people who work on the payer end, which often times can be useful, when we need an issue resolved in a timely manner.
Lynnette’s drive for success has not diminished as she intends on obtaining her credentialing certificate and Masters of Sociology to pursue LCSW. Despite any educational or professional accomplishment or 5-year goal plan.
Lynnette thoroughly enjoys being a mother to her three boys, ages: 19,15, and 4. Although Lynnette bore her first child at the age of 20 she found a purpose that is simply inexpiable. Through the years she has shared her love for baking with her eldest, who is now pursuing a Culinary Arts Degree at HCCC. While her fifteen- year old has already produced and recorded music, and well the 4- year old is just another moment, minute, and second to appreciate, all the small things.
