Immunization roster billing
Roster billing may be used when immunizations are offered for large groups of beneficiaries, for instance at Public Health Centers (PHCs), shopping malls, grocery stores, senior citizen homes, and health fairs.
• Roster billing is not available for hepatitis B vaccinations.
• Roster billing does apply to influenza and pneumococcal immunizations.
To enable Medicare beneficiaries to participate in mass pneumococcal and influenza virus vaccination programs offered by PHCs and other individuals and entities that give vaccines to a group of beneficiaries, the simplified roster billing process was developed.
• Visit First Coast’s forms page for information on immunization roster billing, including sample CMS-1500 (08/05) forms and rosters.
Part A providers who use direct data entry (DDE) can submit roster bills by following the steps below:
• To access the roster bill entry page, choose option '2' (claims/attachments) and then select option '87' (roster bill entry).
• The page allows providers to enter pneumococcal and influenza vaccinations in a roster bill form. When completing the roster bill, providers should observe the following points:
• Only one date of service per roster page
• A maximum of 10 patients per roster page may be reported on a DDE roster page
• Press F9 to transmit the claim
