Menactra Vaccines

  1. Default Menactra shot
    Exam Training Packages
    One of our clinics gave a menactra shot. After 3 weeks they finally called me and asked how to bill this. This is an immunization for meningitis a student needed for college. I am not finding a HCPC code to bill for this. Can anyone help??

    I think 90733 or 90734 is appropriate.

    90733 or 90733 should be used. Please make sure that you use 90471 as your adm code...

    90733 (MPSV4) is a subcutaneous injection
    90734 (MenACWY) is an Intramuscular injection

    The other difference is 90733 is a Polysaccharide & 90734 is a Conjugate

    For more in depth on the difference here is a good resource defining the different types of vaccines (Live attenuated, Inactivated, Polysaccharide, Conjugate & Recombinant)
