Claiming payment for the national Flu Vaccination Service

October 31, 2017

Community pharmacy contractors who have provided the national flu service during the month of October 2017 are reminded of the need to claim payment for the service and reimbursement of vaccine costs as part of the end of the month bundle submission process.

The claim is made by submitting a completed copy of the Community pharmacy seasonal influenza vaccination advanced service claim form (v1 2017/18) to the Pricing Authority with the pharmacy’s prescription bundle.

A number of local NHS England teams have provided IT support via PharmOutcomes or Sonar for recording flu vaccinations administered in pharmacies and for sending an automatic notification to the patient’s GP. However, please note that use of these systems does not automatically make a claim for payment; the systems may allow you to print off a completed copy of the claim form to include in the prescription bundle sent to the Pricing Authority or they may provide the information to allow you to fill in a copy of the claim form.

To receive payment, the claim form must be submitted to the Pricing Authority with the pharmacy’s prescription bundle no later than the 5th day of the following month in which the vaccination was administered.
