Thread: Tdap Vaccine

    Default Tdap Vaccine

    AAPC: Back to School
    I have a pt that has just had a baby. My OB Dr. wants to give her the Tdap vaccine. The pt is not getting it in the hospital. She will get it in the office a week after delivery. Is there a way to code it so it would not be included in the postpartum global fee?

    Default tdap

    i would bill it with a 59 modifier indicating that it is a separate procedure and also put a secondary diagnosis related to woundcare if that is why she is asking to receive injection.

    If she is just coming in for the injection, the vaccine and administration can be billed. You shouldn't need a modifier.
