Can you bill 99211 with the administration of a flu shot to an est. patient by an MA? If so, how would this be coded?

Yes you can code it.
Bill for a MA visit only when a distinct and separate service is performed. Do not bill a MA visit in place of another CPT® code, which more accurately describes the service, such as venipuncture or an injection. Use the CPT® code that most accurately describes the service. Both CPT® and Medicare require you to bill for the service that most accurately describes the code and if administration of the flu vaccine is what is done, bill that code.
