(Thursday, April 17, 2014) — The Ohio Chapter, American Academy of Pediatrics, has won a reversal of a policy decision by Ohio Medicaid. Ohio Medicaid recently issued a policychange regarding payment for VFC vaccines. Our members were concerned that they were only being paid for one vaccine administration code – even though multiple vaccines were given.
Ohio AAP worked with our members and put pressure on Ohio Medicaid using information gathered from both our members and our national
organization. Today (Thursday, April 17), Ohio Medicaid contacted Ohio AAP to let us know that they are working on a revised communication to clear up the problem. They confirmed there is NO CAP on an encounter basis.
