History & Commitment



The ACE Story

Auditing for Compliance and Education, Inc. (ACE) was born from Devona J. Slater’s vision to build a team of anesthesia and pain management compliance and reimbursement specialists with a passion focused on mitigating compliance risks and maximizing anesthesia management practice revenue. 

ACE, Inc. remains committed to Devona’s vision today, incorporating new technologies to streamline operations, reduce costs, maximize client reimbursements, and ensure compliance with federal regulations.

As the services division of HANK.ai, our coding and auditing are enhanced by the leadership and expertise of HANK.ai CEO Dr. Jack Neil, an anesthesiologist. This strategic relationship brings together industry knowledge of coding and auditing and provider-level experience in practice management to maximize revenue with tools to create consistency and efficiency.

Our Commitment to You

We are the experts in our field, and we are committed to bringing the same level of excellence and rigor to all of our clients, preferably before litigation or an investigation is initiated. Our expert ACE consultants have performed audits in 49 states. 

For more than two decades, ACE experts have provided the latest trends in the industry to our clients and the anesthesia community. We believe providers should have a partner who can assist them with navigating the complexities of coding and billing for anesthesia services. Providing quality education is foundational to all our services from coding to auditing. ACE is not affiliated with any billing companies, providing a neutral partner for anesthesia providers.
