South Dakota Medicaid’s maximum allowable reimbursement rate for the administration of the COVID-19 vaccine is based on the Medicare rate. Providers that have an agreement with the Department of Health for reimbursement of COVID-19 vaccine administration should not bill Medicaid.
A bulletin discussing the changes is available on the Department of Social Services website.
