    Default Shingles Vaccination

    Promo: Code Books
    There is a new FDA approved vaccine for shingles. I am having trouble finding a diagnosis code for shingles vaccine. Does anyone have any suggestions for coding shingles vaccination given to someone ovr age 60?

    Thanks in advance.

    We have also been using V05.4 Vaccination against Varicella and I haven't heard any complaints from the insurance dept.
