Claims for COVID-19 Vaccination Local Enhanced Service:

Pharmacies providing the COVID-19  Vaccination Local Enhanced Service will be able to submit claims via the NHS Business Services Authority (NHSBSA) Manage Your Service (MYS) portal. Claims should be made by the 5th of the month following the activity as normal. Information added in to the Point of Care System (Pinnacle) is collated and automatically added to the claims total displayed on MYS. Contractors will need to declare the information displayed on MYS is correct and submit their claims for payment accordingly. Contractors should only submit a claim for payment on MYS if they are satisfied the claim figure is accurate.

Queries will need to be raised with the NHSBSA MYS team if contractors disagree with the claims figure displayed on MYS:
