I have looked into this as well. I do know that medical billing you make less money then coding. For coding, it seems that most employers like you to have a HIM degree. The very least they want you to have the CCS and CCP certifications to have the best chance to break into the field and most schools don’t teach enough so you pass it. (I believe there is a 50% failure rate)

I worked as a medical biller and they in my area start out about $10 an hour. Coding in my area starts out about $18 from what I have seen.

mtstars has a coding board that may help answer some questions. (They are a medical transcription board with a coding board as well)
