Meet Heather Lopez,
MSSNY’s Director of Physician Payment and Practice

Since 2021, the Medical Society of the State of New York has secured millions of dollars in unpaid claims for our member physicians from medical insurance providers. These victories have led to financial relief for physicians in all types of practice environments and it is a vital service that we provide at MSSNY.



Heather Lopez, MSSNY’s Director of Physician Payment & Practice, is essential in delivering these victories for our physicians. Heather comes to MSSNY after a long career in the St. Mary’s healthcare system, where she honed her skills in practice management, billing, reimbursement, and administration. Her expertise is included in the cost of membership and is available to any MSSNY member. Please reach out to Heather for her assistance in practice management, CPT/ICD10 coding, contract negotiation, billing, insurance barriers, and reimbursement methodology.
