Blanche Strauser, an insurance specialist, has been a key member of Dr. Matthew Collard’s staff since 2006. Responsible for verifying insurance benefits and obtaining authorization for testing and treatment, Blanche is an important resource for all our patients. She is happy to answer your questions about health insurance coverage and deductibles. (For short-term disability questions, she suggests you call your employer.)
Blanche is also the friendly face who helps set up follow up appointments after your initial visit with Dr. Collard. She is known for willingness to help patients feel comfortable and valued — from the time they undergo their initial evaluation until the time they are fully recovered. Blanche has worked in healthcare billing and collections since 1993, the year she graduated from Missouri College for Doctors’ Assistants.
Married and the mother of three adult children, Blanche enjoys spending time with her extended family, including her children, grandson, nieces and nephews.
