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.

Manufacturer Vaccine Description Administration Codes
Pfizer 91300 Severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2 (SARS-CoV-2) (Coronavirus disease [COVID-19]) vaccine, mRNA LNP, spike protein, preservative free, 30 mcg/0.3mL dosage, diluent reconstituted, for intramuscular use •0001A (1st dose)
