CMS Offers New Vaccine Coverage and Payment Toolkit

A new Centers for Medicare and Medicaid (CMS) toolkit, Coverage and Payment of Vaccines and Vaccine Administration under Medicaid, the Children’s Health Insurance Program, and Basic Health Program (PDF), can help you understand coverage, cost-sharing, and payment for vaccines and vaccine administration. It addresses the federally funded Vaccines for Children program and assists in navigating vaccination coverage requirements. It also offers guidance regarding the commercialization of COVID-19 vaccines and the end of the American Rescue Plan Act COVID-19 vaccination coverage period (September 2024).
