Federal Resources

COVID-19 Vaccine Additional Dose

Medicare stands ready to pay for administering an additional dose of COVID-19 vaccine consistent with the FDA emergency use authorization (EUA). We’ll pay the same amount to administer this additional dose as we did for other doses of the COVID-19 vaccine (approximately $40 each). We’ll share more information in the coming days about billing and coding.
