    I am still looking for position in the medical billing or coding field. I have tried several times with no luck. If anyone is in need of a dependable, hardworking, trustworthy individual, please reply. I have included my resume with a cover letter and a recommendation letter from my instructor.

    January 9, 2009

    To Whom It May Concern:

    I feel my computer skills, communications skills, office skills, and coding/billing skills would add value to your team. I am dependable, trustworthy, detail oriented, organized, precise, and a fast learner.

    I recently earned my Associate in Applied Science Degree in the Medical Information Technology program, majoring in insurance coding with minors in administrative and medical records, at Madisonville Community College. I was award the Garner Award for Most Outstanding Student in Medical Information Technology and graduated with high distinction.

    As a student, I learned medical office procedures, professional image, and communication skills which all are related to an office position. I am proficient in Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint. I am also proficient in document formatting and word processing applications. I have been trained in telephone etiquette, office manners, and being a team player.

    I have 18 months of customer service experience (handling questions, locating items, answering telephone calls, and so onโ€ฆ) and receiving and receipting payments (cash register). I have 12 months of clerical/office assistant experience along with my internship as a medical tech student. While interning at Green River Hospice, I assembled admission packets, ran copies, answered phone calls, filed documents, reorganized the supplies, and handled data entry into the system. While interning at Trover Health Systems in the billing department, I located batch files, matched batch files, ran copies, and prepared mailings (claims and refund checks that needed to be mailed).

    Furthermore, I feel that being a member of the AAPC organization gives me an extra hand on performing my duties to my fullest potential.

    Thank you for your time and consideration. I hope to have the opportunity to discuss the opening with you in person.

    The nearest one to me is in Shelbyville, near Lexington or Louisville, Kentucky which is about a two hour drive from where I live. With limited income as is and three children at the age of 11 and under, I don't know if it would work out for me. I have no family support but my husband supports me 100% and I can't leave him to deal with it all. I have thought about it trendmendously and I'm still debating on it. Thanks for the suggestion. If you have any other suggestions, don't hesitate. I appreciate all of them.
