Merck Vaccines Price Changes

In August, Merck announced updated catalog pricing on many of their vaccines.  Please note that CPP members can continue to purchase Merck vaccines at the pre-increase price for 90 days, thru November 7, 2017.

 Please contact the CPP office at cpp@nationwidechildrens.org for updated pricing sheets that reflect these changes.  If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact your Merck representatives or call the CPP office at 614-722-2145 (toll free 877-277-9330).

 

August is National Immunization Awareness Month!

The National Public Health Information Coalition has created a communications toolkit that you can use in your practice to help promote importance of immunizations.  Use the toolkit to design your own promotions. Mix and match, copy or adapt the contents to fit the particular news and issues of your own organization or community – and share your NIAM activities to inspire others!

Influenza Vaccine Coding and Billing Program

You have the opportunity to participate in a new, timely educational program: “Cracking the Codes: Coding and Billing for Vaccinations with Fluzone®”

This complimentary, updated program provides a comprehensive review of correct coding for Fluzone vaccine presentations and entitled payment for the 2017-2018 influenza season.  Influenza vaccine billing is complicated and seasonal, and you should annually see that you are coding and billing correctly. There are 25 codes for influenza vaccines, so it can be confusing. Additionally, the AMA recently changed how dosage is expressed in influenza vaccine CPT descriptions. You need to be aware of these changes.

You can join a live webinar followed by a question-and-answer session with a coding expert, or you may view the program’s on line modules, on-demand, at your convenience, 24/7.
