Medical Coding and Billing Salary in Louisiana

Medical coders in Louisiana earn on average $51,244 annually, considerably lower than the region’s average of $54,404.

But like many southern states, Louisiana offers a decent job market for medical coders. The major cities for job placement include Baton Rouge and New Orleans.

Common workplaces for coding professionals in Louisiana are health systems, small group practices (2-10 physicians), large group practices (50+ physicians), and billing companies.

While 54% of the medical coders in the state work remotely, they earn an average salary of $60,300, several thousand above the Louisiana standard. This likely indicates that employers hiring remote staff pay a premium for expertise, often measured in experience or multiple credentials.

Louisiana’s highest-paid medical coders tend to possess their CPC, CPC-I, CPMA, or CRC credential. These top earners also tend to work as coders or auditors for health systems or large group practices.

AAPC is the nation’s largest professional organization for the business of healthcare. AAPC offers certifications, code books, exam materials, local chapters, distance learning classes, and other resources/services.

AAPC annually reviews salaries of healthcare business professionals based on location, education, experience, credential, and many other data points.
