CPT Code Shingrix 90750 What's the reimbursement?
CPT Code Shingrix 90750 - What's the reimbursement?
I called the manufacturing company of Shingrix at GSK or Global Smith Klein and contacted their Provider Reimbursement support at Phone: 1-855-636-8291. Unfortunately they told me they don't have a national average rate on how much you can get reimbursed per unit for the Shingrix shot. Understandably because it is based on Payer's reimbursement policy.
I did some research some more research and found this:
From Medicaid North Carolina:
ICD-10-CM diagnosis code required for billing is Z23 - Encounter for immunization.
Providers must bill with CPT code: 90750 - Zoster (shingles) vaccine, (HZV), recombinant, sub-unit, adjuvanted, for intramuscular injection.
One Medicaid unit of coverage is 0.5 mL.
The maximum reimbursement rate per unit is $144.20.
Providers must bill 11-digit National Drug Codes (NDCs) and appropriate NDC units. The NDCs are 58160-0823-11 and 58160-0819-12.
The NDC units should be reported as “UN1.”
