​Change to COVID-19 vaccine billing – Medicare Advantage​

December 9, 2021

Effective January 1, 2022, providers should bill Independence – not Medicare – for the administration of COVID-19 vaccines and boosters for Medicare Advantage members. Please review the policy notification in advance of the effective date to avoid preventable billing errors.

The Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services have an online toolkit for providers who administer the COVID-19 vaccine and booster to Medicare patients.
