    Default 2011 Immunization Codes

    AAPC: Back to School
    I know I've seen a post regarding this before, but am seeking clarification on the immunization administration codes. The old codes 90465 & 90466 had the verbiage "single or combination" and so does 90471 & 90472. The new codes 90460 & 90461 do not have it. So my question is if a patient comes in and gets a DTaP-Hib-IPV and a MMR and they are under 18 would you code it as 90460, 90461x5 or would you code it 90460, 90461x1? Thanks in advance for any help given.

    Under 18...and if counseling was done and documented...then you would use the new codes.

    Also new codes specify per component so it is possible to have multiple units of the 90461

    Go to the AAP website, they have an excellent article and coding scenarios.
