Rhode Island Medical Coding & Healthcare Salary Information

Rhode Island’s average salary for medical coders is $50,984, a good deal less than the New England regional standard of $56,438.

Rhode Island features a decent job market for medical coders, particularly in and around Providence. Those seeking employment here should focus on large group practices (50+ physicians), hospitals (working in both outpatient and inpatient departments), and health systems.
