Medical Transcriptionist Salary in Connecticut - CT

Statistically, Connecticut is one of the higher-earning states for medical transcription professionals. In fact, the average medical transcription salary in Connecticut is a well-rounded $37,450, which equals an estimated hourly average of $18.01. More importantly; however, is the fact that the highest paid 10% of medical transcriptionists in Connecticut reported that their annual income levels during 2009 were around $49,120, about 24% higher than the statewide average.

Experience is, without a doubt, one of the greatest factors to impact income levels for medical transcriptionists. In general, the longer you stick with the profession, the more money you can expect to make. This occurs mainly based on two factors: pay per line increased and increases in productivity. The most sought after MTs are those that can learn how to balance accuracy against productivity; and because MTs are typically paid on production, it is important to master the art of productivity.

As an example, if you are paid $0.07 per line of transcription and you type an average of 150 lines per hour, you would be making roughly $10.50 per hour. However, if you can increase your speed just 50 lines per hour, your hourly rate would jump to $14 per hour. Most medical transcriptionists use text expanding programs to accomplish this feat, so it is important to understand how you can use these types of programs to enhance your financial potential.
