    Default 90471 denied by Medicare

    Can anyone tell me why Medicare is now denying 90471 with flu vaccine? I have been getting paid for them untill just recently.

    Default

    The code G0008 is used as the admin code when billing a flu vaccine to Medicare.

    Default 90471

    Don't know if this will help or not but our office bills (for medicare) 90471V, 90472V the oral admin is not billed with the additional "V".

    I am curious as to the addition of the V. This is not a modifier and it is not part of the code. where did the instruction to use this come from?
