We know precisely what physicians want.
A well-run office delivering superior service to patients, and the best prices possible while doing so. Each practice also values having their voice heard and concerns addressed, with service like that of a five-star restaurant.
To PedsPal, that's not too much to ask. And it's exactly what we deliver.
Aside from bringing savings to a practice, we represent physicians as a collective voice on issues that matter to you, such as:
- 2-D bar coded vaccines
- Vaccine reimbursements

VACCINE REIMBURSEMENT TOOLKIT
Fair reimbursement of your cost to purchase, store and administer vaccines is critical to the health of our children and your practice. To help you negotiate fair reimbursement, here is a three-step toolkit we have successfully used in our payer negotiations.
- Click here to print a copy of VaccineView to show your payers that vaccines are not adequately reimbursed 47.2% of the time.
- Share the following summary from this recent study:
Analyses showed that routine childhood immunization among members of the 2009 US birth cohort will prevent ~ 42,000 early deaths and 20 million cases of disease, with net savings of $13.5 billion in direct costs and $68.8 billion in total societal costs, respectively.
- Ask your payers to modify your contracts to add the following language:
Vaccines shall be reimbursed at the posted CDC Private Sector Cost plus indirect cost reimbursement of 17% (page 11 of Vaccine View).

Vaccines are the most cost effective tool to improve public health. Just as important, physicians should know that if they stock and give vaccines they will be adequately reimbursed. PedsPal can help you increase that vaccine reimbursement.
The following resources are available to every PedsPal member. And like every offering from PedsPal, are yours for free.
