To Whom It May Concern:

I would like to express my interest working with a company in the administrative management and financial accounting department. Please review my education and experience for the positions that would be within your administrative services, site system problem resolution and education and training.

During my years of employment at healthcare facilities, I audited medical records and itemized statements, assisted in writing policies and procedures for Performance Improvement/CQI, and assuring quality of service to patients through guidelines set by the Quality Management and Medical Staff Offices. I also managed patient financial services from billing to collecting as well as reviewing managed care credit balances for potential refunds. My position of a Governmental/Managed Care Systems Analyst experience has increased my knowledge and understanding of revenue reimbursement, contract specific billing guidelines and charge master generation has prepared me to perform in a medical financial management position on a professional basis. I increased my experience by managing the verification of insurances for admissions and authorizations and have taken this experience to manage skilled nursing facilities and moved my direction to the corporate offices to account for the monthly financials of several retirement communities.

The focus of my education was directed in the field of Management, Marketing, Finance and Business Administration. I graduated from Valdosta State University with a Bachelor of Business Administration degree; major in Management and Marketing on March 21, 1989. I also achieved from Thomas College, a Bachelor of Science Degree; major in Health Care Administration, on March 23, 1995. My internship in Healthcare Administration was at Health South Rehabilitation Hospital in Tallahassee, Florida, which was completed on December 9, 1994. I changed the direction of my field to involve Health Care Administration to broaden my knowledge of administrative and system financial reimbursement and JCAHO standards for healthcare organizations. Acquiring management positions in the Accounts Receivable healthcare field has given me the opportunity to become well versed in aspects of the insurance and governmental payors.

Please contact me if I may be considered for this position or if you need further information. I look forward to speaking with you soon.

Sincerely yours,

Johnathan H. Wurst-Ferrer
