Medical Coding and Billing Salary | Health Information Tech Job Overview, Income, Education


Learn medical coding and billing salary information, job overview, school and education requirements, certification, average hourly income, and more.

Medical coders or billing workers are sometimes called by different titles, such as medical records and health information technicians, billing tech, coders, medical records specialists, or health information technicians.

Although health information techs do not provide direct patient care, they play a very important role within the healthcare industry. They often work with other healthcare professionals such as registered nurses and doctors. In cases where a healthcare worker’s documentation is unclear, medical coders and billing professionals may have to contact them for clarification.

In order to become a health records information technician, you’ll first need a high school diploma or GED equivalent. Next, you’ll have to complete a certificate program or graduate from an accredited associate degree program. Certification programs generally last 6-12 months, whereas an associate degree program lasts approximately two years. Medical coding and billing schools should be accredited.
