Implementation of Strategic Plans for Billing for Immunization Services in Health Department Clinics: The purpose of this cooperative agreement is to enable public health departments to bill health insurance plans, with the intent of capturing immunization service delivery fees. This funding opportunity announcement will improve the efficiency and effectiveness of immunization programs through continuance of current insurance billing projects, or to implement new projects for public health department insurance billing. Many aspects of this FOA continue or build upon activities that were previously funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA) and/or the Prevention and Public Health Fund (PPHF) of the Affordable Care Act (ACA). This cooperative agreement provides two options that applicants can select for development and action. Those two options are (1) planned but not yet implemented a billing project; or (2) want to build a new billing project. Applicants may apply based on the eligibility criteria outlined in Part II, Section c. Eligibility Information. The criteria may vary depending on the stage of any awardees current or proposed billing processes.

Additional Information on Eligibility
All awardees are eligible except for those who received funding under CDC-RFA-IP11-1107PPHF11 Part 4 - Implement strategic plans for billing for immunization services in health department clinics.
Justification for Less than Maximum Competition:

CDC previously awarded funds under CDC-RFA-IP11-1107PPHF11 to 14 immunization program awardees for the purpose of implementing billing systems to bill for immunization services rendered to insured individuals in local health departments.

Under that same FOA, an additional 7 awardees were funded simultaneously to conduct planning that would allow them to also bill for immunization services. These 7 awardees have not implemented those plans as yet due to lack of funding. Also, 3 awardees were awarded funding with ARRA funds in 2009 but have not yet implemented.

As a result of over three years of experience now in planning and implementing billing systems, the initial 14 implementation awardees have demonstrated that billing systems are a very expensive public health intervention to develop and use, however, after the initial investment is made, billing projects are considered to be a very effective management tool.
