Pediatric vaccine administration

    Default vaccine administration pt age 8 and younger
    Medical Coding Books
    CAN SOMEONE TELL ME WHAT AM I DOINF WRONG.
    WHEN I TRY TO BILL FOR A
    90465-Immunization administration younger than 8 years of age (includes percutaneous, intradermal, subcutaneous, or intramuscular injections) when the physician counsels the patient/family; first injection (single or combination vaccine/toxoid), per day
    AND
    90467-Immunization administration younger than age 8 years (includes intranasal or oral routes of administration) when the physician counsels the patient/family; first administration (single or combination vaccine/toxoid), per day

    IT TELLS ME THAT Code 90467 is a component of code 90465 AND THAT THERE IS NOT A MODIFIER THAT I CAN USE...

    DOES ANYONE KNOW WHAT I SHOULD BE USING?
    THANK YOU-
