1. New NDC for Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine

Moderna has introduced a new National Drug Code (NDC), 80777027315, for their coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) vaccine. Medi-Cal will accept and adjudicate pharmacy claims for dates of service on or after April 1, 2021, that use this NDC when billing for the administration of either dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine.

The Moderna COVID-19 Vaccine web page is updated to reflect this change. All other billing policy, regardless of NDC billed, remains unchanged.
