Enroll in Medical Coding and Billing by December 15 and get up to $500 off your tuition OR a FREE laptop* + free textbooks!
We are spotlighting our Medical Coding and Billing program this month, and that’s good news for you because it means extra discounts. Medical coding and billing plays a critical role in the growing healthcare industry.
How much do medical coders and billers make?
The salary of medical coders and billers can vary based on experience and the number of credentials held. Career Step uses the 2016 Salary Survey published by the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) to determine medical coder and biller salary information as it most closely reflects the skillset of Career Step graduates:
- One credential—Medical coding and billing professionals with one credential earn an average salary of $52,605 annually.
- Two credentials—Professionals with two credentials earn an average salary of $60,305 annually.
- Three credentials—Professionals with three or more credentials earn a salary of $66,999 annually.
Those who hold more credentials likely also have more years of experience than those holding one credential, so it should be noted that experience could also be a factor in the increase in salary.
Why become a medical coder and biller?
Tricia, a registered nurse, wanted to be a voice for high-risk populations. She chose to go into medical coding and billing so she could make a difference in the lives of her patients.
