Director of Client Services
Chris serves as Director of Client Services at ZHSG. He began his career in 1994 as a Medicare cost report auditor with United Healthcare, a CMS (then HCFA) contracted fiscal intermediary. In this position, he gained extensive experience in Medicare reimbursement and revenue-cycle management.
Mr. Kennedy joined Zimmet Healthcare in 1998, as the SNF industry began its transition to prospective-payment. His knowledge of Medicare regulations was instrumental in the development of the firm’s now expansive Medicare / Medicaid Reimbursement Audit division. His strength is a “full spectrum,” multi-state understanding of the dynamic SNF revenue cycle from admissions through collections, and every MDS, ancillary service and CMI collection in between.
Chris earned his MBA from Monmouth University in 2004, the same year he was admitted as partner at Zimmet Healthcare.
