Dear Mr. Smith:
I am very interested in joining an organization such as (name of company) in a position that will fully utilize my skills in medical billing that I currently use in my position as a medical receptionist. When I learned that ABC Labs is seeking a medical receptionist with medical billing experience, I was very excited. My qualifications are an excellent match for the requirements of the position. I have attached my resume for your review, and hope you will agree.
My immediate goal is to secure a position as a medical billing specialist that would utilize my five years of experience working in a Healthcare/PPO Managed Care company as an medical receptionist providing administrative support while handling a high volume of medical billing activities.
In my earlier positions as a medical office clerk I assisted with the processing of insurance including Medicare, Medicaid, filed secondary insurance and also performed insurance verifications. I posted and processed payments and coordinated all aspect of medical billing, exercising a proficient knowledge of ICD-9 and CPT coding. My ability to follow up on claims status with insurance companies was a function my supervisor often delegated to me because I am very good at it, and have significantly improved accounts receivables.
Although my medical billing skills were not learned in a formal academic program, I have more experience than any graduate could offer. I do like keeping pace with medical billing trends, so I am working towards my certification in billing and coding on a part time basis. I anticipate completing the program in June.
I have a very personable disposition and communicate well with office personnel, insurance company representatives and even physicians on occasion. I am multitasked oriented with strong organizational skills and a proven ability to learn quickly. I am also extremely proficient in Microsoft Office, OASIS and other automated billing systems.
If you feel there is an interest, I would like to speak with you to learn more about your company, the requirements of the position, and how I am a good fit.
Thank in advance for your time
