Traditional physician billing systems are not able to submit pharmacy benefit claims and the physicians are not part of the various Part D plan’s provider networks.
Coral Gables, FL (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
TransactRx, the nation’s leading Medicare Part D Vaccine Physician Billing System, announced today that it has released Part 3 – Adult Vaccine Billing for Physicians Offices of its 5-part education series titled “Running a Profitable Adult Vaccine Program in Your Practice”. The company will be publishing a new part of the series each week through June 9th on its new blog site http://www.transactrx.com/medical-blog.
Confusion around the process for adult vaccine billing for physicians has been routinely identified as one of the material impediments for the growth of vaccination programs. Much of the confusion started when Medicare changed their regulations so that preventative vaccines were covered under the Medicare pharmacy benefit – Medicare Part D. Traditional physician billing systems are not able to submit pharmacy benefit claims and the physicians are not part of the various Part D plan’s provider networks. However, there are easy to implement web based services and Part D provider networks available to overcome these challenges.
With the appropriate education and the right tools it can be a simple matter to implement eligibility and billing processes that cover both commercial and Medicare patients and allow a practice to provide a robust vaccine program for all their patients.
TransactRx is on a mission to inform physicians and other healthcare providers “Vaccines are Good Medicine and Good Business.”
