State Immunization Registry Participation Encouraged
Humana encourages health care providers to participate in their states’ immunization registries. These registries benefit patients and health care providers in the following ways:
- The registries list all of a child’s immunizations in one place, whether they are received at a clinic, hospital emergency room or other health care provider office.
- Physicians or other health care providers can access a complete immunization history from the registries.
- Humana can use information received from the registries to ensure that a member is current with the NCQA immunization recommendations and to follow up if a member is not current.
You can contact your state’s health department to find your state registry. To find contact information for each state, health care providers can access the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention immunization information system (IIS) website.
