New Financial COVID-19 Vaccine Incentive Through OutcomesMTM for Ohio Medicaid Patients
Medication Management Therapy (MTM) platform OutcomesMTM announced that additional incentives are being provided via Immunization-COVID-19 (D) TIPS. Ohio Medicaid patients in the following plans are eligible for this incentive.
- Buckeye Health Plan- Medicaid
- Molina Medicaid
- Molina Medicaid- COVID-19 Immunization
- Paramount – Medicaid
- UHC Ohio Medicaid
Pharmacists can log into the ConnectTM Platform to obtain information on eligible patients who have not yet received the vaccine. Under this TIP, pharmacists will be required to:
- Discuss the benefits of receiving a COVID-19 immunization and recommend they receive the vaccine
- Address any vaccine hesitancy
- Administer the vaccine at your pharmacy or refer the patient to a location where they can receive the vaccine and confirm administration
Documentation requirements include the date of immunization administration and an attestation that the patient received the vaccine. Pharmacies who refer patients to other vaccine locations can also claim the TIP by following up with the patient and recording the date the patient received the immunization.
Services will only be payable if the claim includes clinical assessment, recommendation, and confirmation of administration. Pharmacies interested in this program can sign up for OutcomesMTM here to act on these TIP opportunities.
OPA is working diligently to facilitate communication between state decision-makers and member pharmacists. OPA has created multiple COVID-19 resources, including a COVID-19 Vaccine Information Webpage, COVID-19 Testing Hub, and COVID-19 Resources Webpage, on the OPA website www.ohiopharmacists.org under the Resources drop-down box.
