Vaccine Updates
NEW Pneumococcal Conjugate Vaccine

The CDC has published the ACIP recommendation of Merck’s Vaxneuvance (PCV15) for pediatric pneumococcal vaccination. It should signal insurance companies to begin paying for Vaxneuvance when administered to patients at 2, 4, 6, and 12-15 months. As practices review the clinical information for Vaxneuvance we recommend reaching out to your major payers to make sure adequate payment is in place. The CPT code for Vaxneuvance (PCV15) is 90671.

If the members of your clinical team have any questions about Vaxneuvance please contact your local Merck representative. Please contact CPP at cpp@nationwidechildrens.org if you have any questions about pricing and discounts.
