North Dakota Medical Coding & Healthcare Salary Information

The average salary for medical coders in North Dakota is $51,179, just under the West North Central regional average: $51,933.

While the state may not be at the top of any list for the quantity of coding jobs available, there are always jobs to be found in this profession, especially in major cities like Bismarck and Fargo. One advantage of finding a job in this field in North Dakota is that the top employers are the larger facilities, which tend to pay more: health systems, payers/health plans, and hospitals (working in both the outpatient and inpatient departments).

North Dakota boasts a high number of remote coders, with 45% of this workforce staying home. Where this is so commonplace a practice, those who enjoy this privilege don’t make any more money than those who work on-site. In fact, remote coders in North Dakota make an average of $50,208, notably less than the state standard.
