Dear Hiring Professional:

I am in search of a medical coding position and I believe that my experience and education will make me a competitive candidate for the position.

I am actively using 3M software to ascertain and log codes into the Healthland Management Database. Coding techniques include inpatient, emergency room, surgery and long-term-care using 3M encoder software and ICD-9/CPT 2010 coding books. My externship includes over 300 hours of training with seasoned coders that have a combined 33 years of experience.

Throughout my career, I have been assigned increasing responsibilities because of my dedication and commitment to professionalism. All concerns are immediately addressed with a high degree of confidentiality in a fast paced, and sometimes challenging, work environment.

I am eager to bring new energy, a positive attitude and fresh perspective to a medical coding position. If my qualifications meet the requirements you are looking for, I would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you. Please feel free to contact me at the above email address or reply to this post.

Thank you for your attention and consideration.

Dear Dr. Myers,

I am writing in response to the Family Medicine Clinic’s ad for a medical biller and believe I am the person for the job. I get along well with other people and understand how a medical practice works. I have a certificate in Medical Billing and Coding and four years of related experience working as a medical biller.

I translate healthcare services into bills to submit to third party payers and government programs such as Medicare and Medicaid. I have a strong understanding of ICD-9-CM, CPT and HCPCS Level II coding. Prior to submitting bills, I verify the codes match the services and I assist other staff in correctly coding services in the medical records.

When insurance companies fail to pay, I resubmit bills and attempt to determine why. My job demands I collaborate with all other staff and work with insurance providers to ensure payment for provided medical services. For private pay individuals, I set up payment plans.

I know I am great as a medical biller and I would be a valuable employee for your practice. I would love to schedule an in-person interview as soon as possible. I invite you to call me or email me to schedule.
