Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is one of the best and safest ways people can protect themselves and their families against the virus. As a participating practice in the COVID-19 Provider Vaccine Incentive program, we recognize your hard work by offering incentives for helping patients make the choice to become vaccinated.

 

Eligibility

The COVID-19 Vaccine Provider Incentive program is open to you if you are a participating Kentucky primary care provider with an Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Medicaid (Anthem) panel size of 25 or more members. All Anthem members identified as receiving COVID-19 vaccination services are included in the methodology. Vaccine results will be determined by a COVID-19 vaccine claim or by confirmation from the Kentucky Vaccine Registry.

 

The results will be calculated for two time periods:

  • September 1, 2021 – Initial incentive payment
  • December 31, 2021 – Final incentive payment

If your practice meets the below thresholds for vaccination with at least one dose by September 1, 2021, you will receive the initial incentive payment based on the following rates:

  • 30% Anthem members vaccinated – $20 bonus per vaccinated member

  • 50% Anthem members vaccinated – $70 bonus per vaccinated member
  • 60% Anthem members vaccinated – $100 bonus per vaccinated member
  • 75% Anthem members vaccinated – $125 bonus per vaccinated member

 

The final incentive payment is calculated based on members who are newly vaccinated between September 1, 2021 and December 31, 2021 (click here to view the Appendix for calculation examples).
