New Jersey Medical Coding & Healthcare Salary Information

In New Jersey, the salary average for medical coders is $62,338, substantially more than the standard for the Mid-Atlantic region ($56,643).

In terms of medical coding salaries, New Jersey features an excellent market. Job possibilities are also strong here, particularly in major cities like Woodland, Clinton, and Monmouth. Still, roughly 15% of coders live here but work in New York or Pennsylvania. In many cases, this likely involves an actual commute, since only about 21% of the state’s coders work remotely. These remote coders earn a little more than the state standard though: $64,227 annually on average.

The state’s top earners tend to hold one or more of the following AAPC credentials: COC, CPB, CPC, CPC-I, CPCO, or CPMA. They also tend to be in coding or billing management, and they most often work in a health system.

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.
