Billing COVID-19 vaccine for Medicare patients

NCPA February 23, 2021

When scheduling vaccine appointments for Medicare patients, be sure to ask them to bring their red, white, and blue Medicare card to the appointment. All claims (even for patients with Medicare Advantage) for COVID-19 vaccine administration for Medicare patients must be sent to original, fee-for-service Medicare (Part B).
