    Hep B - pediatric/adolescent - 90744 (that's the 3 dose schedule) w/ 90471 adminstration code. (we use the 3 dose schedule) - we modifier the E/M/preventive if there is one with a .25 modifier

    Vitamin K is a Jcode - J3430 administration code for that would be the 90772. (we do not charge the admin 90772 if there is an E/M also)
    {that's my opinion on the posted matter}
