Universal Influenza Immunization Program (UIIP)

Fee-For-Service Providers:

This information applies to all health care providers that administer publicly funded influenza vaccine and bill the Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) for this service or who are paid by the province through means other than the UIIP. Health care providers who do not bill OHIP or are not already paid through some other provincial funding source should refer to the section for prequalified organizations (e.g., health care agencies and other organization) for information on hosting reimbursable or non-reimbursable influenza immunization clinics.

As in previous years, the distribution of publicly funded influenza vaccines for the 2017/2018 season will be incremental throughout the province. You will be notified by your vaccine supply source (i.e., local public health unit or OGPMSS) when supply is available.

Ontario Health Insurance Plan (OHIP) Billing for Influenza Vaccine Administration

It is important for the ministry to capture administrative data on influenza immunization for purposes of program evaluation. Therefore, when billing OHIP, please select the applicable OHIP billing code for influenza immunization rather than other immunization billing codes.

Physicians are encouraged to review the delegation requirements in the General Preamble of the Schedule of Benefits for Physician Services prior to holding immunization clinics. Physicians who have concerns regarding these requirements or who have additional questions should contact their local OHIP district office.

Family Health Teams (FHTs):

The following information applies to Family Health Teams (FHTs) that administer publicly funded influenza vaccine to their patients. The ministry is requesting FHTs to report the following aggregate administrative data regarding influenza vaccination of their patients using the Vaccine Utilization Report for non-reimbursable clinics form.

Completed Vaccine Utilization Report forms must be submitted to UIIP.MOH@ontario.ca.
