Our billing and insurance experts serve as your advocates when working with the often-complicated world of insurance. They undergo training as coding specialists and strive to keep up to date with all the latest insurance changes.
Brittany Weiss, OCS
Brittany Weiss joined the front office in March of 2011, moving to the billing department later that year. She specializes in the ins and outs of Vision Service Plan, handles billing of physicians’ fees for surgery, and also assists patients with any questions they might have. She acquired the Ophthalmic Coding Specialist qualification in 2017, and enjoys unraveling the strange little mysteries claims can produce and solving those problems for patients. She also looks forward every day to working with her Cascadia Eye family. Originally from Michigan, Brittany has lived in Mt. Vernon for three years. She loves animals, especially her incredibly indulged cats, and enjoys reading, gardening, working out, and occasionally eating macarons.
Mary Ann Mathison
Mary Ann Mathison joined us July 2015 as a member of our billing department. She previously worked in customer service, but easily transferred those skills to helping patients with billing questions. She really enjoys working behind the scenes, and her coworkers love how quick she is to help them with last-minute insurance questions, too. Previously Mary Ann was a stay-at-home mom for 20 years, and her three sons are in high school, college, and one has graduated from UW. She was born and raised in Philadelphia, but has lived in Arlington for the past 24 years. In her spare time she loves to read. She is also involved in a long-term project to research her family’s ancestry!
Melissa Todhunter, OSC
Melissa Todhunter first joined us as an office assistant when she was 16 years old. Since then, she has been a part of our front office staff on multiple separate occasions – even when life took her away to other parts of the world, she always came back to us! In 2016 she successfully passed the test to be a certified ophthalmic scribe (OSC), giving her the level of eye knowledge on par with the scribes who work with other eye doctors. Melissa has experience in all aspects of the front office, and currently is in charge of insurance verification for patients prior to their appointments. In her free time she loves reading, the outdoors, and her little tyke at home.
