What is provider opt in?
In order to opt in, providers pay an assessment for their uninsured adult population served. Providers who opt in can then receive select state-supplied vaccines for their uninsured adult population ONLY.

In 2019, the provider opt in will not permit giving state-supplied vaccines to an adult that is insured by a non-participating or opt out payer. Therefore, an adult with Medicare and Medicaid will need to be given private vaccine.

What is the assessment rate?
The 2019 assessment rate is $0.53 per adult per month (or $7.44 per adult per year). You will be invoiced annually based on the total number of uninsured adults you report. For example, if you report 100 uninsured adults, you will be invoiced $636.00 ($0.53 adult/month x 100 uninsured adults x 12 months).

How do I determine the total number of uninsured adults?
To determine the number of uninsured adults by facility, query your electronic health record (EHR) system or billing system for the total number of adults aged 19 years and older without a third party payer (like private insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare) seen in the last year.

Is there a minimum quarterly assessment amount I must pay?
Providers must pay for a minimum of 50 uninsured adults. If you serve less than 50 uninsured adults, you will report a total of 50 uninsured adults. For example, if you serve 20 uninsured adults, you will report 50 uninsured adults and be invoiced $360 ($0.60/adult/month x 50 uninsured adults x 12 months).
