Medical Billing & Coding Salary in Rhode Island - RI

During 2009, the median medical billing and coding salary in Rhode Island was $36,760, an average of $17.67 per hour. However, the average salary is not the stopping point for professionals in this career field. As you gain more experience and establish yourself professionally, you may find yourself among some of the highest paid coders and billers in the state. The BLS found that the top 10% in this field were earning roughly $53,270 every year.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics expects that the need for coding and billing professionals in Rhode Island will increase by at least 20% by the year 2018. One of the factors really driving this growth trend is the continued push for electronic medical record (EMR) adoption. According to the Rhode Island Department of Health, about 67.6% of physicians have some type of EMR in their healthcare facility. Yet, only 12.5% of physicians have a system that is qualified to meet new government regulations for EMR adoption. With the implementation of these new systems on the horizon, medical coders and billers will become true assets as they learn how to manipulate these systems and ensure the best rate of reimbursement.

  • Norwich-New London: $37,470
