Roster Billing for Mass Influenza and Pneumococcal Pneumonia Vaccines

Roster billing is a quick and convenient way to bill for flu and pneumonia vaccinations. To submit a roster bill, the same type of vaccination must be provided 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.

Hospice providers may submit roster bills for vaccines with dates of service on or after October 1, 2016. Vaccines may be covered when furnished by a hospice to those beneficiaries who request them, including those who have elected the hospice benefit.

Influenza or pneumococcal pneumonia immunization claims can be submitted individually if you are unable to submit a roster bill. See the Billing Individual Influenza and Pneumococcal Pneumonia Vaccines Web page for more information on submitting individual immunization claims.

To submit a roster bill via direct data entry (DDE), use the Fiscal Intermediary Standard System (FISS) 'Roster Bill Entry' Option 87 from the Claims Entry Menu. Additional information about the FISS Roster Bill Claims Entry Option 87 is available in Chapter Four — Claims and Attachments MenuPDFof the Fiscal Intermediary Standard System (FISS) Guide.
