Paying For the Poor’s Flu Shots

Posted on October 21, 2010

According to a study conducted by Dr. Byung-Kwang Yoo of the University of Rochester Medical Center, physicians are being paid more money to administer necessary vaccinations to children of less wealthy families. According to the survey, the number of poor children receiving the annual flu shot could see a 1 percent increase for every additional dollar provided to doctors via the Government.

While Medicaid is taking care of these young children, reimbursement rates are really the discussion on hand here. The reimbursement rates provided to doctors vary from state to state. Colorado is around $2 while Hawaii is almost at $18. The nationwide average is set at $9.

A young child gets her annual flu shot paid for.

What do you guys think? Should poor children be allowed to get the flu shot every year? Is this system backwards? Leave your comments below.
