Medical Coding and Billing Salary in Colorado

Colorado medical coders can expect an average salary of $60,162, which is a good deal higher than the Mountain region’s average of $55,086.

As one of the biggest states in the Mountain West, Colorado clearly benefits in being able to host larger medical employers that can afford to compensate medical coders more. Within Colorado, the biggest cities for coders to find jobs include Denver, Broomfield, and Aurora. 

To stand the best chance of earning top dollar in Colorado, medical coders should aim for AAPC certifications like CEDC, CEMC, COBGC, COC, COSC, CPB, CPC, CPC-I, CPMA, or CRC—these are the most commonly held credentials among those who make the most money. The most common employer types are health systems, hospitals (working in both the inpatient and outpatient departments), and medium group practices (11-49 physicians).

Almost exactly half of the coders working in Colorado work remotely, earning an average of $62,896. Because remote work seems to be as much the norm as working on-site is in this state, there isn’t as much of a pay difference for those who enjoy this privilege.

How much do you know about AAPC, the nation’s largest professional organization for the business of healthcare? AAPC offers medical coding and billing credentials, code books, exam study materials, local chapters, distance learning classes, and other relevant tools.

AAPC annually reviews salaries of healthcare business professionals based on location, education, experience, credential, and many other data points. These statistics are all based on the most recent survey, which resulted in nearly 20,000 responses. For additional information, view the overall survey analysis or the Salary Survey Calculator.
