    I need clarification for administration codes. I have a patient that received a a flu shot and administration which was 90772, there was no nurse charge
    (99211) is this correct?

    The administration code for a flu shot would be 90471 (G0008 for Medicare). That would be billed with the flu vaccine code and no nurse visit.

    Before each section of CPT for codes 90281-90399, 90465-90474, 90476-90749 and 90760-90779 are some great introductory notes that explain a lot. I would recommend checking those out. The 90465-90474 administration codes are for vaccines (CPT 90476-90749) and the other administration codes are used for immunoglobulins and other meds. And to note: 90760-90779 were all renumbered for 2009 so 90772 won't be valid then.
