    Where do i find the modifier GV in the code books

  6. Default Does the GW have to be on all CPT codes on the claim
    I have a Influenza vaccine I need to bill out due to getting a denial patient enrolled in hospice.
    do I need to put the GW on both the G0008 administration code and the 90662 Vaccine code?
    Thanks

    Whether you are using the GV or GW you will put it on both claim lines.
