I was just looking at getting the COC certification as well. The AAPC says its in high demand and also one of the highest paid coding positions, averaging $62,800 a year. Im currently a biller for an ASC; the COC would allow me to be more proficient at my job, bump my salary a bit and possibly become a coder/auditor later on. Do you plan to stay a biller or move into coding?

There are remote billing jobs but Im noticing they want more work for less pay. I work remote for 1 facility, Im the only biller so Im always busy. I’m currently on my 4th year. Started at $15/hr ( billing only Gastroenterology, ophthalmology, & cosmetic) then switched over to our busier facility (about 15 different specialty practices) about a year in and now I’m at $25.50/hr. Im strictly a biller though. I don’t work collections, payment posting or any other part of the A/R cycle, so Im sort of stuck as most other billing jobs want you to do it all. Billers generally make less than coders and there are a lot of remote coding jobs so it’s definitely a good position to consider if you want remote and more pay!

I am currently a Biller/Coder (I do both) in Florida and I make $24/hour. That’s extremely high for my position, but for an OP coder it’s pretty average.

I am a medical coder going on 6 years. I have my RHIT Cert. I started at 21.00 for coding and am now making 35 as a coding Educator. Its a tough industry. You can’t bluff your way through this job. You have to know how to code and use guidelines or you won’t make it. If you are willing to put the work in you’ll do fine

Thanks for your input! I feel like it might be pretty interesting! The healthcare billing industry has changed so much just in the 5 years I’ve been in it that I can only expect more changes and challenges!

I know I deserved more of an increase this year. I mentioned to my manager about the promotion and was told she will bring it up in a meeting. Three months later and I haven’t heard anything. Any advice?
