    Default 90460 errata

    AAPC: Back to School
    I just read that there has been a correction for the CPT 2011 book with regards to this:
    "On page 5 of the CPT Errata is the reference to vaccine immunization codes….”A component refers to all antigens in a vaccine that prevents disease caused by one organism. Combination vaccines are those vaccines that contain multiple vaccine components.” Revise the immunization administration for vaccines/toxoids guidelines to include reference to all administration codes, and include reference to “all antigens in a vaccine that prevent disease(s)." Would you interpret this to mean that you go back to adding 90460 for the 1st vaccine and 90461 for each add'l vaccine as we did before 1/1/11?? Please let me know what you all think....

    absolutely. If you go to the American Academy of Pediatrics, you can find a crosswalk which will tell you how to bill the vaccine admin codes for the most commonly administered vaccine.s
