|Mary Kiteley says she considers herself more of a hybrid than an accountant. Kiteley spent 20 years doing clinical work as an occupational therapist before joining Bland & Associates to serve as an Accredited Healthcare Fraud Investigator (AHFI) in July 2017.
Kiteley is uniquely qualified for her position because she has clinical experience coupled with accounting knowledge. Her background has allowed her to develop a comprehensive understanding of how healthcare is provided, and how it is captured in claims processing and financial records.
In her previous career, Mary worked in various settings such as acute hospitals, outpatient settings, skilled nursing facilities, and home health. She also spent 15 years investigating Medicare fraud and has expertise in Medicare Cost Report fraud, Part A, Part B, DME, and Home Health Investigations. Kiteley was recognized by the Health and Human Services Office of the Inspector General and the United States Attorney’s Office for providing expertise and support in both criminal and civil prosecutions.
Born and raised in Omaha, Kiteley earned a B.S. in Occupational Therapy from Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado.
