Dear Mr. Jagger:
Your online posting for the position of a Certified Coding Specialist aroused my interest because my qualification exactly match your requirements. With my CPC certification and two years of experience in medical coding, I am eager to support and fulfill the mission and values of Indian Rivers Healthcare Center.
I am great candidate for this position because I am very effective in performing coding activities using ICD-9-CM, CPT, and HCPCS codes. During my experience, I handled many medical information auditing activities and discovered a massive medical coding error that could have played havoc with the facility’s reputation. Possessing an eye for detail and a thoroughness of nature are perhaps the best features of my professional personality which I believe can be invaluable in this position.
My resume and references are enclosed for your perusal. I anticipate meeting with you in person soon; it will provide me a chance to elaborate on my skills and for you to gauge my abilities.
Thank you for your consideration.
