National reimbursement price set for new high-dose flu vaccine

Put words in our mouth

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) decided on a national price for the newly approved high-dose flu vaccine effective Oct. 1. The 0.5-mL dose of the vaccine should be reported with CPT code 90662 (Influenza virus vaccine, split virus, preservative free, enhanced immunogenicity via increased antigen content, for intramuscular use). Medicare's reimbursement is $29.213. Members who have trouble collecting payment from their contractors for the high-dose vaccine should let ACP know so the organization can investigate.
