Roster billing for Part B providers

First Coast has created new standard roster forms for 2019 Coronavirus (COVID-19), monoclonal antibodies (mAb), flu and pneumococcal services. These forms are available to providers through the First Coast website along with an example of the modified CMS-1500 (02/12) claim form, which serves as the cover document for the roster claim. Use of these forms should simplify roster billing for the providers and, since most paper claims received are scanned using Optical Character Recognition (OCR) technology, use of the standard roster form should expedite claims processing. The roster form allows up to five patients per page. It is acceptable to submit up to 20 single-sided roster form pages, up to a total of 100 beneficiaries. Up to 20 roster form pages per modified CMS-1500 (02/12) claim form will be accepted. Effective May 13, 2022, if more than 20 roster form pages per CMS-1500 claim form are received, they will be returned. These returned roster form pages should be resubmitted with a new CMS-1500 claim form, up to 20 pages.
Claims will be rejected as unprocessable when the updated standard roster forms (linked below) are not submitted with the modified CMS-1500 (02/12) claim form or if the roster form/CMS-1500 claim form is incomplete.
Submit form for either COVID-19 vaccines or monoclonal antibody (mAb) infusions. Do not combine both on the same form.

Roster billing

Roster bills can be submitted on paper or electronically. If billing for both influenza and pneumococcal vaccines, these need to be submitted on separate claims. If billing for both COVID-19 vaccines and mAb infusions, these need to be submitted on separate claims as well. Do not bill for the other service(s) on the same claim. Do not use roster billing for a single beneficiary.

Roster forms

First Coast houses the roster forms on the Forms page of our website, under the “Immunization roster billing” section. CMS indicates the pneumococcal roster needs to include the following language:
WARNING: Beneficiaries must be asked if they have received a pneumococcal vaccination.
Rely on patient's memory to determine prior vaccination status.
