Medical billing resumes should emphasize qualifications and skills that the employer describes in the job listing, such as knowledge of codes from the International Statistical Classification of Diseases and Related Health Problems, or ICD, and Current Procedural Terminology, or CPT. Other relevant skills include: familiarity with co-pays, co-insurances, deductibles and write-offs, the ability to use medical coding software, knowledge of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act requirements, and understanding electronic medical records. Many resume samples have the skills or qualifications category at the top under contact information.
Some medical billing and coding jobs only require a high school diploma and some computer skills, such as database knowledge, data-entry and managing records. Others ask for a two-year degree or certification, such as the Certified Medical Reimbursement Specialist credential from the American Medical Billing Association. Applicants who lack medical billing experience should emphasize their education and credentials. They can also include any office work that required efficient and accurate record-keeping.Learn more about Career Aspirations
