Flu Shot Requirements and Roster Claims Submissions

Blue Cross of Idaho accepts claims for flu shots through different methods. In addition to the traditional individual CMS 1500 claim forms, providers also have the option to submit a single roster when numerous shots are administered on the same day in a setting other than the office.

CMS 1500 and UB04 Forms

  • If you are a contracting provider with Blue Cross of Idaho, please submit your claim forms to us electronically. We will accept paper claims if absolutely necessary. Your allowances for flu shots are reflected in your provider contract fee schedule and, in most cases, also through the on-line provider allowance to by CPT/HCPCS code. When submitting a CMS 1500 or UB04 claim form, you can only submit the services for one member per form.

Roster Billing Form

  • Reimbursement for flu shot clinics submitted on a Blue Cross of Idaho approved roster billing form is paid to the member only.
  • Please complete the roster billing form in its entirety according to BlueCard® regulations.
    • We will forward roster billings submitted by providers who typically bill on a UB04 claim form to the BlueCard member's home plan for processing. To expedite the process, you may consider providing the patient with a receipt to submit to his home plan on his own rather than including BlueCard members on your roster billing form.
  • Mail roster billing form to:

Blue Cross of Idaho
Attention: Provider Relations
PO Box 7408

Boise, ID 83707

  • An electronic copy of the roster billing form is available in the secure provider portal of the Blue Cross of Idaho website at bcidaho.com.

* Note - Flu Mist may be included on the roster billing form.

Please refer to PAP505 for additional information regarding immunization billing.
