Medical Coding and Billing Salary in Alabama

Alabama medical coders can expect an average annual salary of $48,169, putting the state below the East South Central region’s average of $50,725.

Not surprisingly, the highest concentration of coding jobs are found in major cities such as Huntsville, Birmingham, and Mobile.

Medical coders who want to maximize their earnings should consider getting their CEDC, CIRCC, CPC, CPC-I, CPMA, or CRC. Our survey shows that the highest paid individuals in Alabama have these credentials.

The top three employer types in the state are small group practices (2-10 physicians), hospitals (inpatient and hospital outpatient departments), and health systems.

Roughly 31% of those employed in medical coding in Alabama work remotely, averaging $57,188 per year. Given that this amount is higher than the state average, we can assume that remote coding positions are awarded to medical coders with above-average coding experience and perhaps multiple credentials.

Persons considering a new career won’t find a better source of industry information than AAPC, the nation’s largest professional organization for medical coders, billers, and other health information technicians. AAPC offers certifications, code books, exam study guides and additional preparation 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. The statistics posted here are based on the most recent survey, which resulted in nearly 20,000 responses.
