How do I bill for the services conducted at two different COVID Assessment /Vaccination Centers?

- If the COVID Assessment Centre group number is the same for two different sites, add up the time and bill one H409. For example, you work at Centre A from 9am to 12pm and Centre B from 1pm to 4pm on the same day, you will bill H409 x 6 at one claim (if you submit at two separate claims, the second H409 will be rejected due to duplicate submission)

- If the Assessment Centre group numbers are different for two sites, submit two separate claims with two group numbers and flag both claims as Manual Review.
