Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine, 20 Valent

Medicare began covering Pneumococcal conjugate vaccine, 20 valent on October 1. CMS suggests submitting separate claims for this vaccine (HCPCS code 90677).

  • Part A Medicare Administrative Contractors (MACs) will hold these claims until the April 2022 system update
  • Part B MACs began processing these claims on October 4
  • CMS will deny claims for vaccines provided July 1–September 30 (before it was covered by Medicare)
