flu-shotFebruary 23 2015

GPs are being advised that practices should not claim under personal administration arrangements for flu vaccines that are procured centrally through Public Health England.

The reminder has been issued by NHS Business Services Authority. It says there has been an increase in FP34P/D Appendix and FP10 forms claiming payment for certain flu vaccines “where practices have later verified these have been centrally procured via a vaccine ordering facility, such as ImmForm.

The vaccines included in the reminder are the Fluenz Tetra nasal spray suspension Influenza vaccine, NeisVac-C vaccine and Boostrix IPV injection.

“Practices must not submit payment claims for vaccines or injections obtained in this way to the NHSBSA,” it says. An FP34P/D Appendix or FP10 “should only be submitted for payment to cover the ‘dispensing’ of the vaccine for personal administration where the vaccine has been purchased by the practice.”

NHS BSA is asking practices which have incorrectly submitted claims for centrally procured vaccines to contact NHS BSA Prescription Services for a payment adjustment.
