AIR vaccine code formats

There are vaccine codes for software products that send claims to the AIR through Medicare online claiming.

Software vendors can build vaccine codes into AIR software products.

You must add a vaccine code and vaccine dose for every AIR episode (single vaccination) you submit through Medicare online claiming. The lists below show the vaccine brand name, code and maximum allowable dose.

Where the max doses field displays NR, there’s no restriction on the maximum allowable doses transmitted.
