Health Insurance Companies Process 1 in 5 Claims Wrong

Medicare Flu Shot Code Q2034

Medicare Q2034 Flu ShotIn 2012 Medicare came out with another code Q code for billing the influenza vaccine. The code is Q2034 for the flu vaccine under the brand name Agriflu. The effective date of the new code is for claims with the date of service on or after July 1, 2012.

Annual Part B deductibles and coinsurance amounts do not apply. All providers who give the influenza vaccination must accept assignment for this vaccine claim per CMS.

The new code is only for Medicare. For commercial insurance carriers you will still need to use codes 90654-90658 as appropriate which are based both on age and whether the vaccine may or may not contain preservatives.
