Influenza Immunization Program Reminders
Thu, Nov 01, 2018
We sent out an email October 31, 2018 to PAS members reminding to pharmacies that provision of off-site influenza immunizations using publicly funded influenza vaccine in congregate living settings* and during home visits are for individuals who are in the targeted patient groups (i.e., those at higher risk) and who are unable to easily access a pharmacy or public health flu clinic. The local Public Health Office MUST be contacted before each off-site influenza immunization service delivery prior to setting up the service to prevent duplication of services.
Also, for the Influenza Immunization Program, all fees MUST be submitted the same day as the patient received the influenza vaccine. Claims for the Influenza Immunization Fee may be submitted after the record of the influenza vaccine product has been submitted electronically for capture to the DPEBB on the date of immunization service. The DPEBB will not reimburse IIF that are not billed according to the IIF policy and procedures.
