How much is common when starting...

    Medical Coding Books
    I was just wondering what is the common pay range to ask for upon passing the CPC exam and 2 years experience of keying charges and assisting the coders with various things. I have had SOME experience coding on the job, but like I said, mostly keying all of the charges, etc. It's a specialist office (Hematology/Oncology) and I will have been here for 4 years this October. I started in Medical Records, then verified insurance and eligibility. Just trying to get a ball park idea of what to ask!

    Would appreciate any input!

    I would check the salary survey to get an idea of what the going salary is in your area.
