Flu vaccination – claiming payment

Flu vaccination – claiming payment

Community pharmacy contractors must can claim payment monthly, via the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) Manage Your Service (MYS) application. Paper claim forms will not be accepted. NHSBSA has produced two videos to assist contractors with submitting their flu claims via MYS:

Claims will be accepted by the NHSBSA within six months of administration of the vaccination or by 31st August 2020, whichever date is earlier, in accordance with the usual Drug Tariff claims process. Later claims will not be processed.

Contractors providing the Flu Vaccination Service will be paid £8.08 per administered dose of vaccine plus an additional fee of £1.50 per vaccination (i.e. a total of £9.58 per administered vaccine). The additional fee is in recognition of costs incurred relating to the provision of the service including training and disposal of clinical waste. Such costs are not reimbursed elsewhere in the Community Pharmacy Contractual Framework.

Contractors will also be reimbursed for the vaccine costs at the basic price (list price) of the individual vaccine administered and an allowance at the applicable VAT rate will also be paid.

Funding for the service will be in addition to and outside of total agreed community pharmacy funding for the financial year, instead coming from NHS vaccination budgets. The total delivered will be dependent on uptake of the service, but no cap has been set for this.
