Is the process of buying vaccines and waiting for reimbursement a financial burden for your clinic?
We can help ease your pain.
The Illinois Public Health Association Purchasing Consortium helps ease the financial burden for healthcare providers who provide immunizations to children covered by Illinois’ Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), also known as Title XXI or State Funded. The Consortium offers pediatric vaccines on a consignment basis. There is no upfront cost for participating providers to acquire vaccines for their patients who are covered by CHIP/Title XXI.
JUST 3 EASY, NO-RISK STEPS TO ELIMINATE THE FINANCIAL BURDEN OF BUYING VACCINES FOR CHILDREN COVERED BY CHIP/TITLE XXI.
- Participating providers will order the pediatric vaccines needed for children covered by CHIP/Title XXI using a link on the IPHA website. The vaccines are then shipped directly to the provider.
- The provider administers the vaccines and then bills Medicaid or the appropriate Medicaid MCO.
- When the provider receives reimbursement for the vaccines obtained through this program, the provider reimburses the Consortium. The Consortium will use the reimbursements to buy additional vaccines. (Please note: The provider reimburses the Consortium for the vaccines only. The provider keeps all other reimbursements related to the encounter.)
You pay us when you get paid. It’s that simple!
Here are just a few more benefits for participating in this program:
- The IPHA Purchasing Consortium will proactively assist your practice with finding the best available prices on the vaccines that you purchase.
- Participating providers will qualify for exclusive group discounts on medical supplies and equipment, laboratory services, office supplies, and business services.
- Participating providers may also be eligible for additional rebates and incentives.
Best of all, participating in the IPHA Purchasing Consortium will provide a cost-effective way for your practice to administer immunizations to your patients who are covered by CHIP/Title XXI without having to refer them to another provider.
