    Question 86580

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello..I am wondering if someone can answer a question that has come up. Can you bill 86580 and 90471 together? I just seem to be getting different answers but no real direction. Thank you.

    You can if you are placing the PPD and giving a vaccine at the same visit, otherwise, no.. the 86580 includes the drug and the injection portion.

    does a physician have to administer the test to bill under the physician's provider number? If a nurse administers, is the code billable under the Hosp provider number even though it is a physician code and not broken into TC and Pro fee components?
