Career Prospects for Medical Coders

Medical coders belong to the occupational group called “medical records and health information specialists.” The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics estimates that the employment of all such specialists will grow 9 percent through 2030.

According to the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC), medical coders, whether certified or non-certified, earn an average annual salary of $54,797. Non-certified medical coders make about $47,200 per year, while their certified colleagues make about $60,097 per year, a whopping 27% more than the former. Other than certification, factors like experience, specialty/medical field, employer type, and location also determine how much a medical coder earns.

Medical coders find employment in physician offices, hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, home health agencies, telehealth companies, labs and imaging centers, medical equipment vendors, insurance companies, government agencies, billing companies, risk adjustment vendors, and healthcare consulting firms.

About a third of all medical coders work from home, most of them being the experienced ones as apprentice coders are generally required by their employers to work under their supervision. However, this is projected to change considerably in the years to come, with remote working becoming a lot more commonplace.
