TdAP for new moms

  1. Default TdAP for new moms
    Medical Coding Books
    my pediatrician wants to give new parents or parents that have infants that are under 12 months Tdap. I found 90715 for the vaccine but unsure if I need to use v06.5 or V06.8

  3. Default TDAP for parents
    can't use V06.1 Dtap is different than Tdap. DTAP is cpt 90700 and Tdap is 90715. I had already asked about that particular V code. thanks

    Wow - this surprises me, because we use V06.1 for all diptheria-tetanus-pertussis combo codes...without issues.
