    Do you bill for the Gardasil shot? If you do what is the code? and does the E/M code need modifiers for this shot?

    You do bill for the shot. The DX is V04.89 CPT 90649 and either 90460 or 90471. No modifier is needed on the E/M.

    History: Detailed
    Exam: Detailed
    MDM: Moderate

    I would code 99214 w/ 611.72, 90649 w/ V04.89, and 90471 (if first shot) or 90472 (if consecutive shots) w/ V04.89.

    Let me know if this helps,
    Ivonne, CPMA
