What would the EM code be for coming in just for immunizations?
Should the diagnoses codes for Hep B, Hep A, TD, and oral typhoid be 999.9?::

If the patient received just the immunizations, the appropriate administration code(s) would be billable. If an E/M service was provided in addition to the immunization, you could bill an E/M, but keep in mind, the documentation must support that "a significant, separately identifiable" E/M was provided.

coming in just for immunizations

no E/M would be coded unless there was something significant and seperately identifable - say i.e. you took BP and it was elevated ... an E/M service is warranted.
