Medical Billing & Coding Salary in Utah - UT

Utah, like the rest of the country, is experiencing a shortage in trained medical billers/coders. Due to the HIPAA Act (Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996), billing and coding education has changed and become much more specialized and precise. As HIPAA cracks down on insurance and health care information fraud in Utah and across the United States, standards have been set for the way health care information is documented and exchanged. The changes in laws and regulations resulting from HIPAA and the increasing and aging Baby Boomer population's need for health care services has also increased the number of vacant medical biller and/or coder positions. 

Utah medical billing and coding salary for those who have become certified earn an estimated $36,000 annually, about $6000 more than their counterparts in other states. Jobs in Utah for medical billers and/or coders are in places such as 3D Medical Staffing in Salt Lake, Certified Medical Billers in Ogden, and Dignity Health in Provo.
