CMS: How to prepare for COVID-19 vaccine

By: Judy Mathias

Editor's Note

The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) on November 5 released a set of toolkits and enrollment actions to take to administer the COVID-19 vaccine when it’s available.

  • Many Medicare-enrolled providers don’t have to take any actions until the vaccine is available.
  • Some Medicare-enrolled providers must also enroll as a mass immunizer to administer and bill for COVID-19 vaccines.
  • Those that are not Medicare-enrolled providers must enroll as a mass immunizer or other Medicare provider type that can bill for administering the vaccines.

Enrollment as a mass immunizer can be done over the phone.
