NHIA, NAHC press for vaccine access 

ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The National Home Infusion Association and the National Association for Home Care and Hospice urge the federal government to ensure home infusion pharmacies have access to COVID-19 vaccines. 

The two trade associations have asked the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and state health departments to ensure state-licensed infusion pharmacies are able to supply vaccines, either directly or in collaboration with home health agencies. They also ask CMS to recognize the role of each entity as essential to the process and to provide adequate reimbursement for providing the vaccine. 

“NHIA and NAHC members can play an essential role in expediting access to COVID-19 vaccines for rural and vulnerable patients; however, doing so requires home health and home infusion providers to invest substantial time and resources to procure, prepare, deliver and coordinate the administration of vaccines,” say the associationsCollectively, we ask for consideration and assistance with the distribution of vaccines to higher-risk patients currently receiving care in the home.
