Medical Billing and Coding Specialist Cover Letter [Sample & Guidelines]

Updated on: February 4, 2020

Cover letters for Medical Billing and Coding Specialist resume need time and thought.

You cannot write a cover letter just because it needs to give your resume a form. It has a purpose – to get the reader interested in the accompanying resume and to provide an overview of what you are capable of. Since you cannot do the latter in a resume, you have to take help from a cover letter.

Now that we have established that cover letters are must-sends along with resumes let us discuss how they need to be written.

A cover letter is an amalgamation of qualifications, skills, achievements, and writing skills. Yes, the last part (writing skills) does seem a bit off, but it isn’t far from the truth.

When you write a cover letter, you almost always think, do I have the magic of words in my fingers? If the answer is yes, you are good to go and can continue bragging about your skills and achievements.

If you are not too comfortable with your writing, you can ask for help so that you can put the expression in your words.

Dear Mr. Johnson:

With a solid track record of obtaining accurate reimbursement for healthcare claims (99% of the time), I can prove to be a valuable addition to your medical billing and coding team.

Currently supervising a team of 14 medical billers and coders, my leadership skills are aimed at one crucial goal – posting of accurate records and following up with insurance companies to ensure that claims are paid in a timely manner.

With deep insight into performing daily reconciliations to ensure all charges cross into the electronic billing system, and demonstrated commitment in complying with overall goals of excellence of the facility, I am positive that my influx into Community Reach Center will be productive.

To demonstrate my skills further, I will call your office after seven days so that a meeting can be arranged. In the interim, please feel free to contact me at (000) 777-1425 if you need further information.
