To whom my concern,

I read your ad for Account Receivable Representative and am submitting my resume for your review and consideration. I have a Certification in Medical Billing and Coding and have worked within a few different specialties. This has added perspective to my experience and given me profound knowledge with the medical billing field.

In my current position I am a Medical Billing Specialist at a physician billing company. This perspective has created a real understanding of the results of coding mistakes and how they can affect people’s lives. One of my primary responsibilities is dealing with the inevitable disputes that arise from denial of coverage often because of improper coding. I provide a valuable link between physicians and the insurance company at times enabling vital patient services.

I maintain a high ethical work standard and understand patient confidentiality procedures. I also have gained an understanding of the importance of the timely posting of payments denials and adjustment. I begun my career at a third-party billing company followed by performing the same job at a private practice, I believe I would bring a well-rounded wealth of experience to the billing department of Hampton Community Hospital.

I look forward to your call to discuss this mutually beneficial opportunity and I will make myself available according to your schedule. Thank you for your time and consideration.
