At UCI Medical Affiliates, a wholly owned subsidiary of Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Carolina, David’s strategic insight pioneered the development of real-time medical coding, allowing Doctors Care to accelerate its revenue cycle, increase accuracy and compliance, while cutting billing cost for its 55 urgent care clinics.

As President of Companion Global Healthcare from 2006-2016, Boucher was recognized as a pioneer in employer-focused medical travel benefits.
