Update: New Medi-Cal Benefit for Hepatitis B Vaccine

February 5, 2019

Effective retroactively for dates of service on or after March 1, 2018, CPT code 90739 (hepatitis B vaccine [HepB], adult dosage, 2 dose schedule, for intramuscular use) is a Medi-Cal benefit. System implementation is expected to take place in the coming months. Following implementation, providers will be allowed to bill retroactively from dates of service on or after March 1, 2018.

Providers should not bill until the system changes take place and are encouraged to check the Medi-Cal website for updates on implementation. No action is required of providers. An Erroneous Payment Correction (EPC) will be initiated to reprocess denied claims.

Manual replacement pages reflecting this change will be released in a future Medi-Cal Update.
