I am a certified medical coder currently employed with an FQHC. I am just curious as to how many people went on to get an associate's degree in the coding profession and if that made much of a difference in helping them get a job, and if so how much of a difference in pay was there. I want to further my education in this field but not real sure if I should just go for another certification in something else or if I should just try to get my associates degree first and go from there. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
