Medical Transcriptionist Salary in Missouri - MO

Missouri Medical Transcription Salaries

Often recognized as the Gateway to the West since it has been the starting and ending point of the Lewis and Clark Expedition, Missouri can also be the gateway to a career in medical transcription. Healthcare professions such as physical therapy, pharmacy, nursing and home healthcare are seeing significant increase in the number of jobs in Missouri today. The state anticipates a 25% rise in medical jobs over the next few years, and hospitals and other medical facilities are offering trained medical workers good salaries.

In addition to employment stability and good pay, Missouri healthcare workers have the benefits of a low cost of living, quality medical and educational services for their families, and access to a variety of cultural and recreational activities. Columbia, Kansas City, St. Louis, and Jefferson City were recently recognized as four of the "smartest" places to live in the U.S. based on these and other factors.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics projects strong job growth for medical transcriptionists in Missouri and other states, primarily because of an increased demand for standardized records. Those with strong computer skills and an interest in working in the medical profession but not in a front-line capacity should consider post-secondary training in medical transcription. Current median Missouri medical transcriptionist salary is $14.40 per hour, with the highest earners making above $20.

Medical transcriptionists in Missouri may receive certification from the Association for Healthcare Documentation Integrity (AHDI).  The association’s two options for certification include the Registered Medical Transcriptionist (RMT) and Certified Medical Transcriptionist (CMT). Both certifications require an examination and those seeking the CMT credential must also have at least two years experience in addition to the examination.
