Since tetnus is considered a immunization shot, you should code for the repair, 90471 for admin and 90715 for shot. I do this on a regular basis and get paid for it from all insurance companies, except of course Medicare whom does not pay for tetnus at all.
I was under the assumption that you can only code the regular administration codes with CPT 90715 tetnus shot.
But recently I was told that if the patient came in for a leg laceration and the physician adminsters a tentaus shot you can use CPT 96372.
Can you code CPT 96372 and CPT 90715 together for therapeutic reasons.
If so, do you have a article or source to refer to.
P.S: Doesn't seem right to me.[/QUOTE]
