    Currently there are two codes to report the Administration of H1N1.

    G9141 - Medicare and some Medicaid and Commercial Plans
    90470 - Is the new code that was approved by the AMA, it was just approved so it will not appear in the CPT book. Most of the large commercial carriers are accepting the 90470.

    You will need to check to see which code your carriers will accept.
