I have a couple that came into the office because they will be traveling. They both had office visits and received DPT vaccines. How should this be coded? And as always, thanks for all of your help. :)

I have had this scenerio come up recently as well and I used V07.8 need for prophylactic measure. Do you think I am way off base using this code? Help:confused:

Thanks for the reply Lisa. :) In my case if I remember right they also gave the patient a prescription in case of diarrhea while overseas. So, I thought that really fell in the prophylactic category. I also have used the counseling codes on similar cases. I guess it all depends on each individual visit and documentation...doesn't it always!! LOL!! ;)
