Managing a financially sustainable vaccine program is key to providing the most value to your practice and your patients. This would include checking your invoices to make sure you’re being charged correctly, checking your billing to make sure your billing rates are adjusted to account for the price changes and checking your insurance payments to make sure they have adjusted accordingly. CPP offers several price change management resources that are posted on the CPP Resources Webpage to help members manage through vaccine price changes.
