Vaccination, being one essential component of quality primary care has one of the highest rates of denials! Why?

 

Providing vaccinations is an essential component of quality primary care but the reimbursement and coding can be tricky.

Join our 60-minute audio presentation by expert speaker Jen Godreau, BA, CPC, CPMA, CPEDC, who will walk you through the typical situations of vaccine immunizations like “patients may miss scheduled vaccines and then the diagnoses change from the ICD-9 codes used in a PMS encounter”,  and how to ensure proper CPT® and ICD-9 coding for the administration and product.

Jennifer will explain essential steps in coding for immunization with the help of flowcharts on which flu vaccine to pick, on which vaccine administration code to use etc.; and cheat sheet on components in major vaccinations. 

The speaker will also address some key challenges that you might face in 2012 while coding for immunization including vaccine administration with counseling, revised CPT 2012 code, new CPT 2012 definition for other qualified healthcare professional limit who can use 90460 and 90461, revised 90460, 90461 guidelines etc.
