    Default Admin Code

    There is not a G code for the Herpes Zoster vaccine as it is not covered by Part B. It is covered by Part D but you have to either have the patient get it at the pharmacy and bring it back for administration or you have to be able to bill to the Part D carrier. The patient can pay cash for it but be sure you have the ABN signed.

    You would just use a 90471 for the administation of the vaccine.
