TO:  Outpatient Service Providers, Physicians, Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants, Federally Qualified Health Centers and Rural Health Clinics


RE:   COVID-19 Monoclonal Antibody Infusion


As Alabama Medicaid continues to monitor the COVID-19 national public health emergency in Alabama, Medicaid is adding the following procedure codes for coverage:


Procedure Codes

Procedure Code Descriptions

Effective Date

Max Fee



Intravenous injection, bebtelovimab, includes injection and post administration monitoring











Intravenous injection, bebtelovimab, includes injection and post administration monitoring in the home or residence; this includes a beneficiary’s home that has been made provider-based to the hospital during the COVID-19 Public Health Emergency














Providers may submit claims for dates of services on or after the effective dates for each procedure code as listed above.


FQHCs/RHCs should submit claims for the above procedure codes outside of the encounter rate.


During the COVID-19 emergency, it is important to file claims as quickly as possible to ensure payment from Medicaid-to-Medicaid providers close to the date of service. The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) has increased the federal matching percentage for the emergency time frame, but states can only receive the increased match on claims paid during the emergency. Providers should include appropriate COVID-19 diagnosis code(s) on claims submitted to help the tracking of COVID-19.
