    Default New Q Codes for Medicare
    Medical Coding Books
    Effective January 1, 2011, Medicare now requires Q codes instead of code 90658. Has anyone heard from any of the commericial carriers if they will require this change as well, or is this just a Medicare requirement?

    Thanks.

    As far as I know, only CMS has requested these temporary codes. We are going to query our payers, though.

    ----For Medicare billing-----

    First find out the brand name of the flu vaccine from your physician; once you rec'd this info go to your hcpcs codes and find the correct 'Q' code for the vaccine (i.e Q2036, Q2037); G0008 is for the administration code for flu vaccine; V04.81 is the dx code.....

    Hope this info helps you....
