    Sorry - having CRS disease today, and not sure where to look this up. If a visit is coded at 99211 (correct - no MD, other specs met), should the admin and vaccine/toxoid codes be added as well, if appropriate? Thanks.

    If the patient came in for the sole purpose of immunizations you cannot code 99211. You can only code the immunization(s) and administration(s).

    Okay, thanks. That is what I thought - if it was only a visit without the vaccines, then the documentation supported 99211, but it was for a vaccination. Like I said, today I have CRS - don't think they have a code for that yet!
