    Default change in Adacel codes?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is anyone know if codes for Adacel vaccination 90700 and 90715 were changed?
    I am a little bit confused. The documentation that comes with the packaging of Adacel states that it is for children over the age of 11. However, 90715 is for individuals 7 years or older. Thanks.

    The packaging indication for appropriate patient age is not related to the age requirment for choosing your code. Because 11 is older than 7, you would still use 97015 for the adacel.
