  • Salary Ranges

    Depending on the job title obtained, those in the medical billing and coding industry make approximately $10 to $14 an hour, as of 2009. Salaries increase with number of years experience and with location. Popular cities tend to pay more than small town areas. Students with this certification in addition to an associate's or bachelor's degree tend to make more money.

  • I have a friend who does it and she started off making $23 an hour. The hardest part is medical termonology which really isn't that hard if you don't let it freak you out. You have a giant book of ICD9 codes and find the right code and put it in. Boring but not hard.
