working in a rural area, i make 10.00, but there are jobs

available in downtown Chicago that pay from 60,000 to 110,000 a

year, so there is really a very wide range.

The person that answered I believe is speaking about a Medical

Billing. Medical Billing and Medical Coding are two separate

Careers. Billers work for Doctor's Offices and are on the lower pay

scale earning a per hour rate and based on what part of the country

you live. Coders on the other had work from home and do coding for

the Insurance Companies. Pay varies greatly for them as well but

can be anywhere from $30,000 to upwards of $100,000 all depending

on company you work for, personal effort and experience.
