State-supplied vaccines reminder - professional
A recent review of claim denial trends has identified that providers are not billing appropriately for state-supplied vaccines. As a reminder, when billing for the administration of state-supplied vaccines, it is important that the state-supplied vaccine be reported with the SL modifier and a $0.00 billed charge along with the corresponding vaccine administration code. Additionally, and just as important, vaccines and their respective vaccine administration procedure codes for a single date of service should be reported on the same claim form.
