    Default high dose flu

    AAPC: Back to School
    Are we still to use the diagnosis code V04.81 (vaccination for influenza) on the high dose flu. I have heard some coders using V04.89 (other viral vaccination). My understanding is that it is still an influenza vaccination just a stronger dose.

    Thank you,
