Practices will be seeing an increase in coding and billing claim submissions for vaccinations throughout the next several months.  According to recent prices, practices typically earn up to $42.72 for each flu vaccine. In 2009, common admin codes such as 90471 had a 36.3% denial rate—which practically doubled, to 71%, in 2015 (PBN 4/9/12). Denials on frequently used immunization codes continue to skyrocket, particularly for vaccine codes such as 90714 and 90715.
