    Default Influenza combo with H1N1

    AAPC: Back to School
    I'm looking for any of the updated information on what the new code will be for the
    Seasonal Influenza and H1N1 combo code.

    As the H1N1 is combined with the regular influenza vaccine, you would report the appropriate influenza vaccine and administration codes, depending on the route of administration. You can find additional information on the cdc website, cdc.gov/vaccines.
