AAP Private Payer Advocacy Article:  AAP New York Chapter 2 Pediatric Council Successful in Advocacy on Vaccine Payment

As reported by Steve Goldstein, MD, FAAP, the New York Chapter 2 pediatric council had several contacts with CareConnect concerning underpayment for vaccines.  After sharing the AAP Business Case for Pricing Vaccines and the Business Case for Pricing Immunization Administration, CareConnect committed to follow the AAP payment guidelines and promised to go back to reconsider most of the vaccine visits they underpaid.  The new vaccine payment schedule will go into effect on January 1, 2017.
