If you are a parent looking for a pediatrician or looking to find a new pediatrician who actually has your child’s best interest at heart, you’ll want to read this. For those of you who don’t know, pediatricians all over the country have begun refusing to accept families who don’t vaccinate, who partially vaccinate, or who want to vaccinate on a different schedule.
We’ve been threatened. We’ve been called names. We’ve been told we are horrible parents. However, it seems the real reason doctors are so concerned about us opting out is that they are compensated by the number of vaccines they are able to administer to their patients. You read that correctly.
Thank you to Cognitive Truths for discovering the Blue Cross Blue Shield doctor incentives booklet from 2016, click here to see it: 2016-BCN-BCBSM-Incentive-Program-Booklet. 1 Inside you will find the payouts given per vaccines. It’s unbelievable.
“The average American pediatrician has 1546 patients, though some pediatricians see many more. The vast majority of those patients are very young, perhaps because children transition to a family physician or stop visiting the doctor at all as they grow up. As the table above explains, Blue Cross Blue Shield pays pediatricians $400 per fully vaccinated child. If your pediatrician has just 100 fully-vaccinated patients turning 2 this year, that’s $40,000. Yes, Blue Cross Blue Shield pays your doctor a $40,000 bonus for fully vaccinating 100 patients under the age of 2. If your doctor manages to fully vaccinate 200 patients, that bonus jumps to $80,000.”1
However, there’s also a catch. Rules dictate that “pediatricians lose the whole bonus unless at least 63% of patients are fully vaccinated, and that includes the flu vaccine. So it’s not just $400 on your child’s head–it could be the whole bonus.”1That means the decision not to vaccinate might be costing your doctor $40,000, or much more, depending on the size of their practice. Now THAT’S an incentive.
So, keep all this in mind if your pediatrician recommends your child under the age of 2 receive the flu vaccine. It’s NEVER been studied in very young children and evidence actually suggests the flu vaccine weakens a person’s immune system over the long run. Now that you know that, do you think your doctor is really concerned about you and your family or are they more concerned with the cash coming their way?
