Predicting the 2020-2021 flu season impact is harder than usual given the overlap and possible increased risk of COVID-19 during this time period. To help support you during what could be a confusing time, we’ve compiled a list of resources to help your practice prepare.
Handling Both Influenza and COVID-19
We recommend you start early and order enough flu vaccine to cover your practice’s predicted needs
Vaccinations and Resources
Please continue to encourage your patients to get vaccinated for influenza including implementation of standing orders, where possible.
With a potential COVID-19 vaccine becoming available, you may be asked to vaccinate and report to state immunization registries where historically you may not have done so. If you’re not already registered, you can obtain next steps by contacting your state registry at cdc.gov/vaccines/programs/iis > Contacts for IIS Immunization Records.
Filing Claims Correctly
UnitedHealthcare COVID-19 Policies
You can find up-to-date information on UnitedHealthcare’s COVID-19 resources and policies at UHCprovider.com > COVID-19 Information and Resources.
