Vaccination Payment Policy Update
The Ohio Medicaid Managed Care Plans have decided to continue the temporary payment policy allowing for reimbursement to non-Vaccine for Children (VFC) providers for both the toxoid and the administration of needed immunizations for children and adolescents ages 0-20 years old. This policy will take effect for dates of service that began on April 15, 2021 and will continue through December 31, 2021. This policy update is intended to address decreased utilization of preventative medical services, including childhood immunizations, that have occurred during the pandemic.
