    Default 90460?

    AAPC: Back to School
    Hello, I have a question on the use of 90460 for vaccinations. I know this code includes counseling. Would I apply this code if Dietary Counseling or any other counseling done at same time of vaccination or only if documented vaccination counseling was done? Any clarification would be appreciated.

    This code is only used when vaccines/toxoids are administer. Codes 90460 and 90461 are only used for immunization administration throught age 18 with counseling.

    Thanks for your response. I think I should have phrased my question better now that I look at it. In order to use 90460, the documentation has to clearly state that administration of vaccine or toxoid counseling was done prior to administration of the vaccine/toxoid?
