Star Coding, Inc. was established in 2003 by Sanjay Saxena, M.D. to provide personalized, individual advice to practicing health care providers on the principles of coding and documentation.
Dr. Saxena is a Certified Professional Coder, a practicing physician, and the founder and President of Star Coding, Inc. He graduated from Jefferson Medical College, then completed a family practice residency in Harrisburg, PA. He went on to join a small group practice in rural western Minnesota, then taught at a family practice residency program in Youngstown, OH. Along the way, he served as a medical director of a gynecology clinic, and began to develop his interest in coding. Currently he is working in a small hospital owned group practice in Hagerstown, MD.
Dr. Saxena is licensed to practice medicine in Maryland, and is a Diplomate of the American Board of Family Practice. He is in good standing as a member of the American Academy of Family Physicians, the American Society for Colposcopy and Cervical Pathology, and the American Academy of Professional Coders. He became a certified professional coder in December 2003.
In this day of declining reimbursement and increasing cost, Dr. Saxena has found that maximizing coding is the only way to maintain a constant revenue stream. Dr. Saxena has been able to generate a greater income and see less patients than many of his colleagues because of his knowledge of coding. He regularly performs audits on his own documentation to insure that it meets Medicare documentation guidelines. He has a strong desire to assist other practitioners in coding for and collecting what they truly deserve, and becoming confident that their documentation reflects those codes.

The goal of Star Coding, Inc. is to provide personal and individualized information for medical providers to improve their coding, maximize gross receipts, and be confident that their documentation is appropriate to meet insurer's standards.
