Vaccine Toolkit

As a valued provider, you play a significant role in helping protect our members.  According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, a report released in May 2020 indicated a decrease in the number of routine pediatric vaccines ordered and administered due to families staying home during the COVID-19 pandemic. AmeriHealth Caritas Florida recognizes that childhood vaccinations are an important part of maintaining a child’s health.

Drive-through immunizations

AmeriHealth Caritas Florida recommends the following billing practices for a brief, five-minute conversation with a recipient’s parent or guardian prior to a drive-through visit for child immunizations:

  CPT code COVID-19 modifier New patient modifier Drive-through immunization modifier
New patient 99441 CR CG HA
Existing patient 99441 CR   HA

The brief conversation before a drive-through immunization should not take the place of a well-child visit. Every reasonable effort should be made to have a comprehensive well-child visit in person or via telemedicine.

Below we’ve compiled the Vaccine Toolkit that includes helpful resources for you to educate parents on the importance of timely vaccines for their child. These resources come from the CDC and the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). Thank you for all you do for our members!
