Are the codes G0010, G0009, G0008 are only used/applicable for Medicare patients?

Third-party payers have varying payment policies, so check with your local payer for specifics in your area.
Some insurance companies will accept the same G codes for the administration of influenza, pneumococcal polysaccharide, and hepatitis B vaccines that are required by Medicare.
However, most insurers use the “Administration Codes” listed below:
1. 90471 Immunization administration (includes percutaneous, intradermal, subcutaneous, intramuscular and jet injections); 1 vaccine (single or combination vaccine/toxoid).
2. 90472 Each additional vaccine (single or combination vaccine/toxoid) (List separately in addition to code for primary procedure).
3. 90743 Immunization administration by intranasal or oral route: 1 vaccine (single or combination vaccine/toxoid).
