I wanted to know if a preventive counseling code (99401-99405) could be billed along with vaccines and administration codes. The counseling would be on the vaccines, not something else. I realize there are vaccine administration codes that include counseling for 18 yrs. or younger (90460-90461), but what about adults who get counseled? Would that just be included in the vaccine, and administration codes (90471-90474), and not separately billable? Can I bill a 99401 with vaccine and 90471 for example? I've tried to find information, but keep coming up with information on just the 90460 & 90461. I have a provider who would like to bill for the additional counseling, and I would like to have a definitive answer for him. Thanks in advance. :eek:

I am disappointed to find that this question was left unanswered. I also have a provider who saw a patient only for vaccines and wants to bill for extensive counseling.
