    Exclamation MCR Flu Shot

    Please help me with a questions

    MCR pt is under hospice, the hospice nurse would like to pick up a flu shot from pt PCP and adminster it to patient. Can the PCP bill for the Flu shot?

    I don't know any references for this situation, so this is just my opinion.

    I would think that the PCP could bill for the actual vaccine medication, since he/she is providing it. But the PCP could definitely not bill for the administration of the vaccine since the hospice nurse would be administering the vaccine.

    Hope this helps!
