    will 90663 be invalid? Also do we know if the government will supply these flu vaccines?

    I am not sure if the 90663 will be invalid. I think we will need to research the deleted codes, or wait for additonal information.

    Some states have the EPSDT program for certain age groups, and this is provided from the state. This information is only availble, I am thinking by the individual state guidelines, and specific programs. I have seen state funded vaccines, through programs under Medicaid. This is important information as it is a crucial part to billing for services, and how to bill them if the vaccines are government funded.
