    Unhappy vaccination for traveling

    AAPC: Back to School
    Good morning all,
    I have an office visit for a patient level 3 and the Dr. gave a vaccination for Td V06.5 and wrote - traveling- as a diagnosis. Is there a v code for vaccination for traveling??

    What is the chief complaint? If it is to get immunizations and prophylactic meds for travel, you will need to use 99401-99402 as this is preventive. As for a dx we use V65.40.

    Thanks very much. That's exactly what we were going to use. It's nice to be confirmed.
