2009 CPT Changes: Revised Codes for Preventive Medicine, CPT 99381- CPT 99387, CPT 99391 - CPT 99397

For Preventive Medicine, Immunization codes are "removed" from the main codes being that it can be billed and distinguished from the preventive medicine encounter. It is now billable and performed separately in conjunction with the preventive medicine service.

CPT Code 99381 - CPT Code 99387 - Initial Comprehensive Preventive Medicine - New Patient
CPT Code 99391 - CPT Code 99397 - Initial Comprehensive Preventive Medicine - Established Patient

For the Immunization Codes: look at CPT 90465 - 90474
For the Immunization Administration Codes: Look at CPT 90476 - 90479
