Great news, as of January 1, 2022 the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) will pay $30 per dose administrative fee for Part B preventive immunizations (influenza, pneumococcal and hepatitis B for high risks) vaccines. The price increase reflects a broader administration wide strategy to create a health care system that results in better accessibility, quality, affordability, empowerment, and innovation. Due to these new changes, practices should verify their top payers are using the 2022 Medicare fee and not an outdated one or you won’t see this vaccine administration fee adjustment.
