Wyoming Medical Coding & Healthcare Salary Information

The average salary for medical coders in Wyoming is $47,035, a fair amount less than the Mountain region’s standard: $53,477.

The most common employers in Wyoming are small group practices (2-10 physicians) and hospitals. While the rural job market is strong in this state, those who are looking for open positions would also do well to consider the hospitals that may be hiring in larger cities like Sheridan and Laramie.

Only 28% of medical coders in Wyoming work remotely, but they earn an average salary of $51,667 – substantially more than the state standard. Employers are likely hiring individuals for these positions based on ample years of experience or additional credentials – both good indicators of expertise.
