BC Family Doctors has secured two new temporary fee codes that can be billed for influenza and pneumococcal immunizations in adults.
Both are effective for dates of service on October 1 or later. The end date is April 30, 2021.
Billing for immunizations in children has not changed.
Further information on billing for flu shots can be found on the BC Family Doctors website.
Influenza immunizations are recommended and provided for free to:
- People at high risk
- People capable of transmitting influenza to those at high risk
- People who provide essential community services
The full eligibility list is noted in this document from the BCCDC. This document can be displayed in your clinic or on your clinic website to inform patients before they arrive for their flu shot.
