I work for a cardilogist (adults) and we give pneumococcal vaccination. I'm not really sure if these are the correct codes that I should be billing. I can use some direction!!!!!!

medicare 90732 &G0009/// Non Medicare 90732 & 90471.


Is this the correct way?

The problem with using 90471 for medicare patients is that is not reimbursed at 100%. Most things the media is putting out says that the injections are covered at 100%, which is why you should use G0009 which is covered 100%.

I agree with rebecca - your codes are correct as you have them. We code the same way :)
{that's my opinion on the posted matter}
