Immunization codes

    We are having a problem with CPT codes 90465 90466 90467. Per our coding software edits and the CPT edits, it states that 90465 cannot be used with 90467. The question then is---if the patient comes in and receives 2 Intramuscular injections (Pneumoccoccal Conjugate Vaccine and DTAP) and 1 oral-Rotavirus what are the procedure codes that should be biller?
    90465 90466 90467?

    There can only be one initial immunization given, that is why you cant use both 90465 and 90467. Take a look at the following and that should help.They really go in depth with immunization coding. Hope it helps.
