Counseling for HPV Vaccine

    Default Counseling for HPV Vaccine
    Medical Coding Books
    When a patient presents for the HPV vaccine (90649) and the physician counsels about vaccine (pros/cons) prior to being administered, should we bill an regular office visit, the 99401 Preventve Med Counseling, or only the vaccine and admin code?

  2. #2
    in the situation you described, it would not be appropriate to bill for an EM visit; only the vaccine and admin code
