Medical Coding and Billing Salary in Louisiana

Medical coders in Louisiana earn $49,839 on average, a few thousand lower than the region’s average of $54,086.

Like many southern states, Louisiana provides a decent job market for medical coders. The major cities for job placement include Baton Rouge and New Orleans. The most common workplaces are health systems, small group practices (2-10 physicians), large group practices (50+ physicians), and billing companies.

While 34% of the medical coders in the state work remotely, they earn an average salary of $57,300, several thousand above the Louisiana standard. This likely indicates that employers hiring remote workers pay a premium for expertise, often measured in experience or multiple credentials.

The highest-paid medical coders in Louisiana seem to favor the following AAPC credentials: CPC, CPC-I, CPMA, or CRC. These top earners also tend to be working in health systems or large group practices, as regular medical coders or as auditors.
