Today, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) released an updated public use file (PUF) that presents a high-level and preliminary overview of Medicare utilization and spending information from Medicare FFS claims for the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine. This updated PUF adds three more months of data and refreshes the previously released figures with more complete data. The PUF shows that between December 11, 2020 and September 30, 2021, Medicare payments for administration of the COVID-19 vaccine were nearly $1.4 billion. The PUF is based on Medicare FFS claims CMS received by October 29, 2021.
[Note: The Medicare FFS program is paying for COVID-19 vaccine administration on behalf of MA beneficiaries as well as for FFS beneficiaries receiving COVID-19 vaccinations in 2020 and 2021.]
