    When I became certified a few years back, I received a 15% increase which was quite significant

    Have you checked the Salary Survey for your area. I thought GA paid pretty good from what I've been told, maybe it depends on what parts of Ga.

    Hey, don't fee bad I got a great review but an "I'm sorry, can't give you a raise." But I'm not complaining, I have a job and very thankful. I'm under paid for what I do and how long I've been doing it (9 years), but I don't want to rock the boat.

    Sounds like he is already doing pretty good for his experience, is he coding, too? Depends on what else he brings to the table and what the clinic can budget, but at least a cost of living raise is warranted.

    In California the rate is around $40k to $50k depending on your experience.

    Interesting thread. I work in Oregon and make quite a bit more than the rest of you posting. I do remember when I was thinking of relocating to the south, I found the payscale to be significantly lower than in the west. In these economic times thought, I'm grateful to not be laid off.

    I'm in Jacksonville, Fl and are still in College learning this biz. Considering the economy and the numbers of people with degrees laid off?? I would jump thru hoops to get $15.00 an hour. Granted we are in a very responsible field with knowledge and coding responsiblities, but If you are saving your office moneys with no rejections and they know it, I would think they would appreciate it and give a dollar or so? good luck

    Hi Adrianne;

    If you don't mind my asking, since your company and your name aren't listed, what are you earning hrly? Point is, my friend only does straight billing and collections for a retail outfit. Her company handles and sells supplies. But my point is, is that she does no CPC what so ever. She also makes about 19 an hr. For like 9-10 years. I guess it comes down to what you feel is a rate worthy of your abilities? What is your tardiness or sick day history reflect? They're basing their decision on something? Maybe you can try dropping some hints about looking around for a medical teaching job or something to get their minds thinking about how much experience they'll loose for not paying you what they know you're worth? Good Luck

    I recently started my first coding job here in Florida. I am 54 and retrained(I was a dentist in England for 25 years) as a coder when we moved here. I got the exact job I wanted working for an excellent billing company where we do physician coding and billing (but only after much disillusionment at my job prospects). The job called for experience and CPC or CCS-P credential; I have neither(I have CCA though) and no experience. They asked me what hourly rate I was expecting. I really, really wanted the job in order to get my foot in the door and to work for this particular company so I asked for $12/hour and got the job. Perhaps I should have asked for more but I could have priced myself out of the job. It certainly beats the $8.50/hour I was getting from a skinflint of an employer at a UPS store and I was only part time. The other great thing about the job is the paid vacations, health insurance,pension etc so I am happy with my situation.
    What do you guys think?
