Hawaii Medical Coding & Healthcare Salary Information

The average salary for medical coders in Hawaii is $57,438, which is a bit lower than the Pacific region’s annual salary average: $59,134.

As with Alaska, Hawaii’s unique geography provides good job prospects for medical coders looking for lasting careers. Major cities for coders to look for these positions include Honolulu, Hilo, and Wailuku.

The most common places of employment in the state are hospitals (working for both the outpatient and inpatient departments), health systems, and health plans/payers. Medical coders wanting to advance their career or earn their full salary potential should look at the following AAPC credentials, as these are the most commonly held certifications among the top-earners in Hawaii: CPC, CPC-I, CPMA, CRC.

Only 15% of medical coders in Hawaii work remotely, although they earn an average of $64,167 – substantially more than the state norm. We can gather from this that remote coding positions, while available in Hawaii, are an opportunity only realistically extended to those who have lengthy resumes, full of years of experience, certifications, or both.

There is no better source of information about medical coding and billing than AAPC, the nation’s largest professional organization for the business of healthcare. AAPC offers certifications, code books, exam study materials, local chapters, distance learning classes, and other resources.

AAPC annually reviews salaries of healthcare business professionals based on location, education, experience, credential, and many other data points.
