Reimbursement Update for COVID-19 Vaccine

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Wyoming welcomes the arrival of safe and effective vaccines as a key component in the national and local COVID-19 response.  The administration costs of vaccines will be reimbursed by BCBSWY and there will be no cost share required from the member.

Each vaccine has its own code and administration n code. Since the Pfizer and Moderna vaccines require two doses, each vaccine has two administration codes to indicate which dose was administered. Please see the table below for coding guidance.
