Question:

How are hospitals paid for influenza and pneumococcal vaccines?

Answer:

When these vaccines are furnished in a hospital outpatient department, rural health clinic (RHC), or federally qualified health center (FQHC), payment is based on reasonable cost. Otherwise the Part B payment allowance limits for influenza and pneumococcal vaccines are 95 percent of the average wholesale price (AWP).
