    Medical Coding Books
    Can We Bill These Together? The Consensus Here Is That You Cannot Because 86580 Is Considered A Lab And Not A Vaccination. Please Provide Any Info You May Have.

    Thank You!

    I have always been taught that the administration was included in the test itself. Below is a Q/A from the Coding Institute.
