2023 Medical Billing and Coding Salary Survey

Latest Survey Results Posted Below

Thanks to all who contributed to the 2014 Medical Billing and Coding Salary Survey. This is for both Medical Billing and Medical Coding Salaries. We’ve compiled salary data from different sources on our medical billing and coding salary page. But it lacked something –You!

Many medical billing salary surveys from the popular salary websites are extrapolations or estimates so it’s hard to get an understanding of how real they are. For example the closest category the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics has for billing and coding data is for medical records technicians.

All responses were anonymous and the survey results were updated with all submissions received thru 2014.

We hope the results have been helpful to you in understanding what you are worth and compare to others in the field.

Your response has been tremendous – Thank You!
