Medical providers have an important role to play in vaccinating their patients, and staff.  Below are resources to assist you in your planning efforts.

 

Vaccine Wastage is required to be reported.

Prior to wasting any doses, please call the Immunizations section at 302-744-1060. If a vial is dropped and broken, this is considered a wasted dose and can be reported without contacting Immunizations. All other wasted doses need to be confirmed with Immunizations before disposing of the doses.

Pfizer wastage/other wastage reporting:

Pfizer vial contains 6 doses, if provider is unable draw the 6th dose, this dose is considered a wasted dose and must be reported as a wasted dose using the wastage form attached and emailing COVIDVaccine@delaware.gov or fax 302-739-2555.

Provider Reimbursement

For most providers, Delaware Medicaid (DMMA), and our partner MCOs (Amerihealth Caritas of Delaware and Highmark Health Options) will be using the Medicare Fee Schedule rates for COVID-19 vaccine administration. Additional guidance will be forthcoming for certain providers subject to alternative fee schedules due to federal regulation, such as FQHCs.

Any provider planning to bill for COVID-19 vaccine administration should ensure that they are enrolled DMMA and with both MCOs. See Enroll with DMMA here. See here and here to enroll with MCOs and view CMS GuidanceFind HRSA reimbursement information
