Flu vaccination – claiming payment

Flu vaccination – claiming payment

Community pharmacy contractors can claim payment monthly, via either the paper claim form or the webform provided by the NHS BSA (but not both).

Claims will be accepted by the NHS BSA within six months of administration of the vaccination, in accordance with the usual Drug Tariff claims process. Later claims will not be processed.

Claiming use the paper form

The Community Pharmacy Seasonal Influenza Vaccination Advanced Service claim form should be submitted to NHS BSA with the FP34C each month. The correct version of the form (V1 2018/19) should be used to avoid any delays in payment.

To claim payment, the completed form should be sent with your prescriptions and FP34C submission document.

Claiming online

The NHS BSA will send a unique url (link) to the webform to all community pharmacy premises shared NHSmail accounts on a monthly basis. If contractors use the webform for submitting their claims, they should ensure that they only make a single claim for each calendar month, as subsequent submissions for that claim month will not be accepted by the webform.

Contractors providing the Flu Vaccination Service will be paid £7.98 per administered dose of vaccine plus an additional fee of £1.50 per vaccination (i.e. a total of £9.48 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.
