Effective July 1, 2020, Arkansas Medicaid will pay $15.45 for the administration of an influenza immunization. A rate of $13.14 will be paid for the administration of other Medicaid payable vaccines. The existing rates for Vaccines For Children (VFC) and SCHIP vaccines will be adjusted to account for this rate increase.
For adult vaccines (ages 18 and above), the following HCPCS and CPT codes are to be used in conjunction with the vaccine being administered:
- G0008 – Influenza immunization
- 90471 – First vaccine administered
- 90472 – Subsequent vaccines administered
The Injection administration code, T1502 will continue to be payable for beneficiaries of all ages. T1502 may be used for billing the administration of subcutaneous and/or intramuscular injections only.
