Though I don't have an option for you that's broken down state by state, I can offer some insight into what training for medical billing and coding is out there and what options might be viable for you.
With the internet literally bringing the world into our homes, it brings the opportunities for education and vocational training as well. The idea of staying at home on a cold wintery day in your jammies with hot coffee and taking a class online is pretty appealing.
Free vs Paid Training

In many cases, there are certifications needed or at least in-office training that eventually leads to expertise and the option to work from home.
Many courses and classes offer financial aid or grants. I was surprised how many states offer grants for vocational training. When I was considering training for in medical transcription, I found out via Careerstep that the state of North Carolina (where I live), would pay for 80% of my tuition! I wouldn't have even known about this if I hadn't reached out to them requesting info.
