Opportunity to Bill for Pharmacy Services We Need Your Input!

The Cabinet for Health and Family Services Department of Medicaid Pharmacy Technical Advisory Committee (PTAC) contacted KPhA to seek our membership input regarding the pharmacist's experience when billing for vaccine safety counseling. 

What is Vaccine Safety Counseling?
  • Focused on prevention and risk factor reduction
  • Counseling points may relate to the patient's age, family history, and areas of concern
  • Pharmacists assess patient factors and recommend appropriate immunizations
  • The session lasts approximately 15 minutes
  • Recognizes pharmacists' services, in addition to dispensing
Pharmacists' utilization of this opportunity to bill Medicaid may impact our advocacy efforts for future payment of services. The Kentucky Pharmacists Association (KPhA) has created a survey to evaluate and better understand the needs of Kentucky Pharmacists so we can implement this service successfully.
We are requesting ALL pharmacists, in all practice settings, to take a few moments to complete this brief survey
