About Kim Cuce:

With an impressive 24+ years in the healthcare industry, Kim has dedicated her career to the Durable Medical Equipment (DME) industry since 2010. Prior to join VGM, she owned a comprehensive medical billing company catering to a diverse clientele of family practitioners, rehab centers, orthopedic surgeons, pediatricians, emergency room physicians, and urologists. As the managing partner of a small full-service DME company in 2010, she orchestrated remarkable revenue growth from $1.2 to $11.4 million through a strategic blend of organic expansion and targeted acquisitions. In 2011, she was sought after by a large provider to provide consulting services, addressing reimbursement challenges for healthcare practices. Her expertise in analyzing workflow processes, policies, compliance, company structure, reimbursement, and denials culminated in the development of a successful restructuring plan, including the creation of new Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) and the establishment of performance benchmarks. Notably, she has served as the Director of Operations and Director of Reimbursement and Payor Relations for very successful DME companies. Her commitment to the industry extended to board service with several state associations.
