    Default Immunizations/Vaccines

    AAPC: Back to School
    I am trying to learn Peds coding and had a question that I am hoping that someone can help me with. If the documentation states that a patient had PCV#2, dTAP-hIB-ipv#2 would you interpret that this was the second in a series or do you could out the 90670 x2, and 90698 x2?

    Default New Pedi admin codes

    Good Morning,
    My question is related to the new pedi admins and insurances that require unit billing, not separate lines for multiple admins.
    So would this coding scenario be correct?

    CPT Unit Description
    99391 1 preventative
    90698 1 DTap-Hib-IPV (5 components)
    90670 1 Pneumococcal Vaccine (1 component)
    90680 1 Rotavirus Vaccine (1 component)
    90460 1 First Component
    90461 6 Subsequent Component

    Thank you!
