    AAPC: Back to School
    Im a student and I wanted to do a presentation on child vaccinations. For my presentation I wanted to present a superbill. The child would have had 4 immunizations for the visit to the dr office. I am confused I know that I do a cpt code but do I also included a diagnosis code for each immunization or 1 general code for all 4 vaccinations. Please help me I have worked hard in my class to maintain my gpa. I do assume that since 4 shots were administered I would code accordingly.

    Thank you all in advance.

    You would code a V-code for each vaccine given
    90700 ACEL-IMUNE (D-TAP) (7yr under) V06.1
    90633 HEP A (2-dose) V05.3
    90696 KINRIX (DTaP-IPV) V06.3
    90656 INFLUENZA (over 3 yrs.)no presv. V04.81
    and then you administartion codes. we use 90471 and 90472

    Default Vaccinations

    Fyi..... You use proc code 90465 and 90466 for pediatric imms unless the child is over 8 then you use 90471/90472. Also there is a specific dx for each shot. Hope this helps :d
