    If counseling was provided prior to the vaccine administration, you would report 90460 for the first componet and 90461 x 2 for the remaining two componets (90461 is reported for each additional component. Since an MMR is three components, you use 90460 for the first component and 90461 for the additonal components).

    You may want to speak with the payer about this as some payers have specific criteria for reporting these new codes. Some payers will allow the units and other payers may want the codes listed as separate line items and some payers may even require modifiers. Hope this helps.
