Flublok Quadrivalent Billing Update

May 3, 2017

Effective January 1, 2017, the American Medical Association (AMA) approves the use of Current Procedural Terminology (CPT®) code 90682 (influenza virus vaccine, quadrivalent (RIV4), derived from recombinant DNA, hemagglutinin (HA) protein only, preservative and antibiotic free, for intramuscular use), which best describes Flublok Quadrivalent. Flublok Quadrivalent is for persons 18 years of age and older.

Please be aware that Flublok Quadrivalent is not yet accessible for administration. Once available for the 2017-2018 flu season, BCBSTX will cover CPT 90682 when used appropriately.
