    Smile new Flu/H1N1 combined vaccine CPT code

    AAPC: Back to School
    Is there a cpt code for the new Flu/H1N1 combined injections or will the 90658 code cover it even though it contains the H1N1? And will the ICD-9 V04.81 be the Dx? I have asked 12 people and no one knows the answer everyone is holding their charges till they find out. Help!!!!!!!

    You might want to search previous forum posts about this topic...I had to search for the answer this week too & from what I read & how I understand it is this...
    The 2010 flu vaccine includes the H1N1 (as well as 2 other strains) so billing the 90658 covers inoculation against H1N1.
    V04.81 would still apply.
