VIDEO: How To Bill Flu Shots under ICD-10

Health Insurance Companies Process 1 in 5 Claims Wrong

What ICD-10 diagnosis code should be used when billing a flu shot?

Check out this short video NueMD and I made together explaining the ICD-10 code to use when billing the influenza vaccine. Plus you will learn that the ICD-10 code can be used with all other vaccines.

So as you can see the diagnosis code of Z23 can be used with other vaccines too, not just flu shots.

  1. Could you please settle a discussion for me? If we give a flu shot to a Medicare patient and it is denied for frequency – the patient already rec’d shot for the season – and we DO NOT have a signed ABN on file, can we bill the patient? I have recently started with a company that has, in the past, billed patient since remit shows PR151 to patient responsibility. It was my understanding that without a signed ABN, we cannot bill. Any input would be appreciated. BTW, I love your blogs. Always my go to for info and I have even referred physicians I know your way!

  2. The CDC has recommended a second series of flu vaccinations for older high risk patients. What ICD 10 should be used for these second vaccinations in the same season? Z23 does not work, we have already tried it.

  3. for pediatric patients Z23 should be coded as secondary. and Z00.121 or Z00.129 should be primary.

  4. Is it possible to get Power point print outs of the Videos. I would like to put together binders for our Nurses & other staff.

    Thank you in advance for anything you may have and taken time to read this.
