Immunizations for Health Partners (Medicaid) and KidzPartners Members
You may be answering more questions about vaccines because of news reports about infectious disease outbreaks. As a physician, you know that immunization is crucial for limiting and preventing these dangerous outbreaks. Partnering with Health Partners Plans (HPP) can help protect our members and communities by ensuring they are informed and have access to vaccines.
HPP is countering false claims that vaccines are dangerous by emphasizing the following facts to our members:
- Vaccines will protect you, your children and the people around you.
- Vaccines are safe and effective.
- Doctors can tell you which vaccines you and your children should receive.
We encourage you to reinforce this valuable information to HPP members.
With the recent measles outbreak, patients may start asking about the measles, mumps and rubella (MMR) booster. Inform them that HPP fully covers all immunizations, including the MMR booster. There are no frequency limitations for CPT 90707 for the MMR vaccine.
Thank you for your support in ensuring our members receive the information and care that will help protect them and their communities.
