Flu vaccine

Jean Posted Thu 28th of April, 2011 19:05:47 PM

What injection code do you bill with the flu and phenomia vaccine?

SuperCoder Answered Thu 28th of April, 2011 22:12:22 PM

If a patient received both the flu and pneumococcal vaccines at the same encounter, the practice would code the two vaccines (e.g., 90732 and 90658) plus 90471 and 90472.

Medicare has different codes for vaccine administration, so for Medicare patients the practice should use G0008, “Administration of influenza virus vaccine,” and G0009, “Administration of pneumococcal vaccine,” in addition to the appropriate codes for the vaccines themselves.
