HHSC received reports of pharmacies using the National Drug Code (NDCs) listed on the package box of COVID-19 vaccines rather than the NDCs listed on the individual vial. To avoid access to care issues, VDP added the following COVID vaccine NDCs listed on the box to the Medicaid and CHIP formularies Jan. 4, 2021:
- NDC 59267-1000-02 (outer packaging for a carton of 195 vials);
- NDC 80777-0273-99 (outer packaging for a carton of 10 vials)
HHSC allows COVID-19 vaccine pharmacy claims with dates of service beginning Dec. 11, 2020. The two NDCs above will appear in the Product Search the week of Jan. 11, 2021.
