Roster billing is a quick and convenient way to bill for flu and pneumonia vaccinations. To submit a roster bill, a home health agency must have provided the same type of vaccination to five or more people on the same date of service. Each type of vaccination must be billed on a separate roster bill. You cannot have pneumococcal pneumonia vaccines (PPVs) and flu vaccines on the same roster bill.
Roster billing enables Medicare beneficiaries to participate in mass pneumococcal and influenza virus vaccination programs offered by various entities that give vaccines to a group of beneficiaries. Learn more about this simplified process.
