Default 90471 denied by Medicare

Can anyone tell me why Medicare is now denying 90471 with flu vaccine? I have been getting paid for them untill just recently.

The code G0008 is used as the admin code when billing a flu vaccine to Medicare.

Don't know if this will help or not but our office bills (for medicare) 90471V, 90472V the oral admin is not billed with the additional "V".

I am curious as to the addition of the V. This is not a modifier and it is not part of the code. where did the instruction to use this come from?
