    I have been coding for 5 years and certified for 1.5. What hourly wage should I ask for for a billing AND coding position in Colorado? It's for a third party billing company.

    Check out the AAPC 2017 coding survey which you will find on the website. At the very least it will give you some guidance; it's done by region and certifications held.

    Here is the AAPC site, but I found it a bit high for my area: https://www.aapc.com/resources/resea...alary/colorado

    Hi,

    I currently live in Denver and we have a similar level of experience. I would say that the salary information listed on the AAPC website is pretty much spot on. Obviously it depends on who you're working for and what you're doing, but don't be afraid to negotiate and really sell yourself and what you bring to the table. Good luck!
