Are you billing for vaccine administration? For those of you who are, what is the collection rate that you are able to recoup? More specifically, we are trying to get an understanding of the percentage of recoupments from third party billing of total billing.

Yes, $4-$5 each shot. It depends on what company. At least two paid us almost all

Madison County has been quite successful in billing 3rd party’s for the administration of the vaccine.  I would estimate our collection rate at approximately 75-80% of the shots administered.  We are receiving a higher percentage collection than that when we have the insurance information but some individuals do not provide any third party insurance information on the consent form that is collected at the clinic, in that scenario there is nothing that we can bill/collect. When the information is provided on the paper consent form, we manually enter all of the consent form information into our Electronic Health Record system in order to bill.  It is very tedious but seems to be worth it.

Cayuga County is collecting insurance information.  We use CDMS to register and NYS has not given us access to collect insurance information on our site, even though apparently they are collecting insurance for the NYS sponsored clinic sites via CDMS. We do not have an EMR. We are working to partner with our hospital to help facilitate our billing for administration. We do not know what the various insurances will reimburse. We hear Medicare is generous. Our typical vaccine administration rate is $18 based upon outside generated cost report for our Art. 28. Our purpose in billing administration is to have an audit trail so that we can later attempt to recoup outstanding costs with FEMA if possible. We have no data on recoupment at this time.
