Flu Shot by Pharmacist

    New Call-to-action
    When a flu shot is given by a pharmacist, how does that get billed? Can the administration be billed? And would it be submitted under the pharmacist or does a provider need to sign off on it? I am new to flu shots being given by a pharmacist versus given in a clinic by a nurse.

    Medical Billing
    I have not ever done billing for a Pharmacist, but they should be able to bill for them to most payers. And, yes, for both the administration and the supply. The claim would be submitted on CMS-1500 to most payers. For Medicare, the pharmacist would have to be enrolled under Part B. I would research Roster billing with CMS: . Maybe talk with other pharmacists.

    Just my 1 cents.
