Medicare enrolled ambulance suppliers administering the COVID-19 vaccine


Medicare Part B ambulance suppliers who plan on providing the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine must separately enroll external link as a non-institutional provider type, such as a mass immunizer.
Enrolling over the phone is easy and quick — call your MAC-specific enrollment hotline external pdf file and give your valid legal business name (LBN), NPI, TIN, practice location and state license, if applicable.
Note: It is suggested to obtain a new NPI external link for the mass immunizer to simplify the billing process.
When the credentialing process is completed, you will receive a new PTAN for the mass immunizer enrollment. If you applied for a new NPI, that NPI will be associated with billing for the administration of the vaccine and monoclonal antibodies.
Our Claims Processing unit recommends using a one-to-one NPI-PTAN match. If your enrollment dynamics permit the use of one single NPI to one PTAN, then you will diminish the need for us to develop for claim matching and/or avoid possible claim rejections. This will prevent unnecessary claims processing delays and administrative effort by both the MAC and provider:
If a new NPI was not obtained, please follow the guidelines below.
