    Default Tetanus Toxoids

    AAPC: Back to School
    Can anyone point me to Medcare's coverage of tetanus toxoids (CPT code 90703), please? I have searched the Medicare website with no luck. Thanks.

    type your geographic location

    I know TX has LCD on it...i pulled below from trailblazer http://www.trailblazerhealth.com/Too...inID=1&ID=2913

    Tetanus (90703, 90714, 90718) – These injections are covered when given for an acute injury to a person who is incompletely immunized.

    When a tetanus booster is given to a patient in the absence of an injury, the injection does not meet the coverage criteria for Medicare (even though it may be appropriate preventive treatment).
