Salary

  1. Default Salary

    Can anyone tell me what would be a fair hourly salary for a Medical Biller (not currently certified) with 1 year of experience for a small (5 providers) Internal Medicine practice in the No. Virginia area?

    This person is a hard worker/quick learner who is up for review. He currently makes $16/hr and has not had an increase in the last year.

    Just wondering if anyone can give me an idea of what they are seeing in this type of situation.

    Thank you.

    I think 16/hour is generous for 1 year experience, but being a hard worker I would say 16-18 is fair. I started at 15 and after certification jumped to 19..so maybe have the person obtain their cpc certification and give a healthy increase. Of course depends on the area.

    I just recvd my CPC in Nov and only got a dollar I am suppose to get more after 3mo probation period but I felt that was a little unfair however, I did not complain bc I wanted the experience. I have 8yr of medical exp but very little coding. I was hoping to get more, since a friend of mine also started @ 19 with her CPC. Oh well, guess I will have to work my way up!

    To rephrase that I only jumped up a dollar after the CPC...but i'm probaly stuck at 19 because of the economy..But as someone says it's all about the experience. An average coder salary is 35-40, 000 so guess we're all in the right range.

    Unhappy Salary
    This is what I thought the salary range should be but I am finding it difficult to find employers willing to pay for the experience. I have been on many interviews with no luck in landing a job. I am beginning to wonder if I am asking for two much money. I have been doing this for 9+ years.

    Default Raise after obtaining your CPC
    I only recieved a 50 cent raise, I don't make any where near $18/hr. I've been coding for 3 1/2 to 4 years now, but just recently got my certification. I'm in the NC area. do you think 15 a hour is good. I felt I should have gotten more than a 50 cent raise, anyone else have any thoughts on that?
