Hello,
Can someone tell me how you are billing vaccines to Medicare?
They are denying the administration code 90471.
Thanks!!!:confused:

What vaccine are you billing for? Medicare has its own G code for some of the vaccines so they will deny 90471.

Flu vaccine is Q2038 and administration is G0008. Pneumonia vaccine is 90732 and administration is G0009.

Is anyone else having trouble getting the G0008 paid? They keep denying mine and when I call and ask why they are not very helpful and say that maybe there is an alternate code, so do I bill the 90471? :confused:

Last time I had to bill for it I had no problems with G0008. What is the denial code they are giving you? What diagnosis you using? Medicare?
