Thread: Fluzone High Dose

  1. #1

    Question Fluzone High Dose

    AAPC: Back to School
    Does anybody know if there is another code for the fluzone high dose vaccine?
    It costs more than the regular fluzone vaccine, so I would assume there would
    be a different code.

    CPT and Medicare indicates to use 90662 for Flu-zone high dose.

    "Fluzone High-Dose is an inactivated influenza virus vaccine indicated for active immunization of persons 65 years of age and older against those virus subtypes A and type B contained within the vaccine. There have been no controlled clinical studies demonstrating a decrease in influenza incidence after vaccination with Fluzone High-Dose, when compared to standard dose flu vaccines.

    There are two flu vaccines called Fluzone: Fluzone and Fluzone High-Dose.

    Fluzone is billed using CPT 90658, whereas Fluzone High-Dose is billed using CPT 90662."

    Thanks for your response, I was trying to hard to figure out if Medicare wanted
    a special code.

    Thanks again
