Lina Posted Tue 13th of September, 2016 12:42:01 PM
Need help with Varicella (Varivax)chickenpox. CPT code 90716. Can you please provide me with an administration codes for commercial payers and Medicare for adults only? Wasn't sure is it 90471 for commercial or 90460? And no clue how to bill Medicare patients. Thank you in advance.

Use code 90471 for adult immunization administration of Varicella vaccine. For immunization billing information of Medicare patients, please see the following link: https://www.cms.gov/Outreach-and-Education/Medicare-Learning-Network-MLN/MLNProducts/downloads/qr_immun_bill.pdf

Thank you!!
