    Hi,

    Does anyone has code H1N1 influenza A administration for Medicaid ?
    What CPT code do you use? Is 90470 or G9141? I had tried both and got rejected as invalid, who can help me? Thank you.

    It is 90470.....You can't send a zero charge to the insurance co. so we charge $0.01 for the vaccine (90663)....

    We were advised that Medicaid required the 90663 with a Zero charge attached. that is how we bill.

    And yes 90470, sorry- moment of dyslexia

    Please note that if you send a claim electronically w/a ZERO charge it will not go thru so that is why we send it w/ $0.01....Again, we don't have any problems...
