Reminder: CPT code for administering immunizations


Please remember that when billing CPT code 90471 for the administration of a primary immunization (including  percutaneous, intradermal, subcutaneous, or intramuscular injections) always report with a count of one only. For each subsequent immunization administration, use the add-on code 90472. Reporting 90471 with a count greater than one may result in an inaccurate reimbursement.

For more information, please refer to CPT coding guidelines and Harvard Pilgrim’s Vaccine and Immunization Payment Policy.
