IDPH IMPORTANT VFC PROGRAM UPDATE EFFECTIVE OCTOBER 1, 2016

Posted on: August 24, 2016

Effective October 1, 2016, the VFC program will no longer provide vaccines for children who have All Kids insurance, the state’s Child Health Insurance Program (CHIP) coverage (referred to as Title XXI [21] or “State Funded”). Participants through age 18 with Medicaid coverage (referred to as Title XIX [19]) are VFC eligible and may continue to receive vaccines through the VFC program.

HFS will issue a provider notice that contains detailed billing and process information in the near future. The VFC program and HFS will offer a webinar in September to review the changes and provide detailed billing and process information. The webinar announcement will be emailed to all VFC providers and posted in I-CARE.
