If a nurse is administered a meningococcal vaccine and I only want to charge for the draw fee not the vaccine itself would I bill 90733-26?

According to the CPT Guidelines, 90733 identifies the vaccine product only. If you are only coding for the administration, then you should be using one of the codes in the 90460 - 90474 range without a modifier. Hope this helps.

I agree - you won't bill 90733 at all if you don't want to bill the vaccine product. If the patient is under 18 and counseling was provided (eg, warning about possible side effects, etc.), use 90460. If they are over 18, or if they're under 18 and documentation doesn't show that any counseling was provided, you'll use 90471, if it was the only vaccine administered during the visit. Hope that helps! ;)
