I recently passed the CPC exam and I am wondering what salary I should be getting. I live in Mo and I have 5yrs billing/coding experience.

Geography means much.  

Cerified coders could make anywherre from minimum wage to $25 per hour or more.

In Florida, I started making $6.00 per hour. In 2 years I went up to $13 per hour then jumped to $50 wih another employer.  Now down to $0.00 per hour because I lost my job due to my stroke.  Working hard to make a comeback.
