    AAPC: Back to School
    The defintion says "..with counseling by physician or other qualified health care professional..

    Can we use this code when the child comes in just for a nurse visit to recieve vaccines and the patient does not ever see the provider?

    The definition of "qualified healtcare professional" has been expanded in CPT for 2012. Check out the AAP website.
