wanted to double check and make sure that we can charge the administration code for the injection, in our case it would be 90656 for fluarix

Yes, be sure to charge the administration code for all flu vaccines that you give. Don't forget the administration G-code (G0008) for your Medicare patients if flu vaccines are given to them.

I hope this helps!

thanks for the answer, now if we're seeing the patient for an office visit would we still charge the administration charge for the vaccine?

No, not in the case of an E/M, vaccine administration and vaccine code.

If you had, for example, an E/M, B12 injection, and admin code of 96372, then yes you would need the modifier 25 on the E/M.

I hope this helps!
