Medical billers manage the billing and payment side of a healthcare facility so that doctors can concentrate on their work entirely. They are typically responsible for medical billing related to appropriate claim form preparation, submission, payment processing, and the follow up process. They work closely with the accounts department and insurance companies to ensure that all claims are paid in a time efficient manner.
If you are looking for your first job as a medical biller, you will need to ensure that you provide prudent information when writing a cover letter. Here is an example you can use if you have no experience in medical billing.
