    Use 95144 for antigens if a single dose vial (specifiy number of vial(s)) or 95165 if multiple dose vial (specify number for doses) - bill when vials prepared. Use 95115 for administration of one injection or 95117 for administration of two or more injections on the date of service.

    What is appropriate for billing 95165? It states to specify number of doses; I have providers that say this means the number of antigens; I understand this to mean the number of doses in the vial, regardless of the number of antigens mixed in the vial. What's correct? Thanks!
