Dear Madam or Sir,
I am a graduate of the Medical Coding Specialist program at Madison College and went on to continue my education in the Advanced courses offered in Medical Coding. I am currently enrolled in the online internship Practicode with the American Academy of Professional Coders. This internship has served as a great refresher on coding while Ive been staying home to raise my children for the past few years. Ive also stayed busy with volunteer work during this time.
I have eight years of insurance and office experience, seven of which were with Government contracts for TRICARE, TRICARE For Life, working with Veterans and coordinating benefits with Medicare, Medicaid and private insurers. This experience, along with my education in medical coding, in addition to my experience with claim adjustments, offsets and reimbursement on medical claims, general office duties, prove that I am an ideal candidate. My experience in addressing billing issues, coding complications, error checking, breakdown of billing, working with different departments and staff, organizing charts and appointments all showcase a high attention to detail in everything that I do.
I look forward to hearing from you.
