Does medicare cover #90715# for 924.8? There are no open wounds.

Medicare will cover other immunizations only if you have been exposed to a dangerous virus or disease. For example, if you step on a rusty nail, Medicare will cover a tetanus shot. Otherwise, have the patient sign an Advanced Beneficiary Notice [ABN] alerting them they may have to pay for the service.
