Question:

Is Q2039 the correct code to assign to report the flu virus vaccine to Medicare?

Answer:

This not-otherwise-specified (NOS) code may be used between August 1 and December 31, 2017 to report the influenza virus vaccine, quadrivalent (ccIIV4), according to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) in MLN Matters number MM10196.

The following new code, which the American Medical Association recently approved, should be used for dates of service on or after January 1, 2018.
