We held another installment of our “Virtual Rounds: COVID-19” series on September 20, 2021. Given the nature of the pandemic, policies have been evolving and have required updating, which is why we are unable to post the audio of the webinar. However, you can download the updated FAQs and slides from the session to review the updates we provided, which included: 

  • Use of code 99401 for COVID-19 vaccine counseling
  • Coding guidance for counseling unvaccinated members
  • At-home vaccine providers
  • Provider education and coverage of COVID-19 monoclonal antibodies
  • General coding/claims reminders
  • In-network lab updates
