Insurance and Vaccination
Overview  |   MISC_INFO  |   TAX  |   NVICP  |   SCOTUS  |   Partnerships  |   Incentives

It is generally well known that insurance companies will not cover vaccine injury. In fact, all pandemic vaccines such as the swine flu (H1N1) vaccine in 2009 are not even covered by the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICA 1986) and when the 1976 swine flu was administered to the population under President Gerald Ford, insurance companies refused to cover adverse reactions so those who ended up suffering from Guilaine-Barre Syndrome after receiving the 1976 swine flu vaccine ended up having to sue the vaccine manufacturers. This is one of the main reasons the manufacturers were released of all liability for their ineffective and unsafe vaccine products in 1986 since they were losing too many lawsuits against them for vaccine damage claims. See this article on the above and

Currently, there is a Tax: single dose is taxed $.75, Triple antigen vaccine $2.25tax on each vaccine administered in this country which goes into a fund to compensate families who are able to substantially prove that their injury was a direct result of the vaccine they were given. So, in this way, the government is insuring the vaccines recommended in this country with the tax added to the vaccines administered. Here is an excerpt from the Foreward to The Vaccine Religion: Mass Mind & the Struggle for Human Freedomem> by Walene James, founder of Vaccination Liberation.
“[S]ince the inception of the national Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP), over $3 billion has been paid to families claiming their child is suffering from a debilitating disability or died as a direct result of a vaccine. The United States Supreme Court (SCOTUS) decision on February 22, 2011 (Bruesewitz v. Wyeth) proved what many of us knew would happen once the federal government took medical liability away from vaccine manufacturers. Although the VICP was to compensate families who suffered a vaccine reaction through no fault on the part of the manufacturers, if there was proven negligence in the design of the vaccine or subsequent batches of vaccine produced were contaminated due to manufacturer negligence, families were told they could sue manufacturers civilly. This was all reversed when SCOTUS ruled in favor of Wyeth Pharmaceuticals, essentially giving a green light to vaccine manufacturers to produce vaccines intended to maim or sterilize recipients with no legal recourse for victims.

While looking for specific references, I discovered that while insurance companies will cover the cost of the vaccines themselves, these same companies have cancelled health insurance policies for families that refuse to vaccinate. Certainly, if they were forced to cover vaccine injury, they would rethink this pharma-driven policy. In Neil Z. Miller's book, Immunization: Theory vs. Reality - An Expose on Vaccinations, p. 87 -- "...Health insurance companies are threatening to cancel policies when parents refuse vaccines for their children -- unless parents sign a form absolving the insurance company of liability if the child contracts certain diseases." Source: footnote 206 - As reported by several families with health insurance. See also

And this article covers the awards and prizes being offered by insurance companies to vaccinate but do not cover injuries -- families are forced to file a claim with VICP to receive coverage for care of a vaccine-injured child.

CDC Vaccine Price List
CDC [Discounted] Vaccine Price List with confirmation of tax rate at the bottom of the page. Vaccine cost includes $0.75 per dose Federal Excise Tax. That is $.75 per individual "vaccine." Some vaccine preparations contain multiple "vaccines." I.E. MMR or DTaP are each triple preparations and are taxed at $2.25 each.
National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (NVICP or VICP)
The following discription is from the website of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HRSA). The description is more idealistic than real.
The National Vaccine Injury Compensation Program is a no-fault alternative to the traditional legal system for resolving vaccine injury petitions.

It was created in the 1980s, after lawsuits against vaccine companies and health care providers threatened to cause vaccine shortages and reduce U.S. vaccination rates, which could have caused a resurgence of vaccine preventable diseases.

SCOTUS decision: (Bruesewitz v. Wyeth)

On February 22, 2011, the Supreme Court ruled in favor of vaccine manufacturers in the case of Bruesewitz v. Wyeth, forcing all vaccine injury claims to go through the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program (VICP) even for vaccine design defects. As Attorney Mary Holland so eloquently stated at a press conference opposing the SCOTUS ruling:

"[The Vaccine Injury Compensation Program] doesn't work, ... it's broken, and it's not remotely a court. There are no rules of evidence or procedure, or discovery, or a jury of one's peers. It's a program that is stacked against families...because vaccine injuries make vaccines look bad. Children in the U.S. are conscripted into a war against infectious disease but without real consent and without adequate information. With this Supreme Court decision, many more children are likely to be injured and left dead on the battlefield. The government and doctors assert that vaccines are safe and effective, but the Supreme Court acknowledges that they are indeed, unavoidably unsafe. With this decision, the Supreme Court grants almost blanket immunity from lawsuits to an entire industry for compulsory products. If vaccines are really so safe and effective, why does industry need so much protection? And why are children left so defenseless by law with no access to any court?”

Scientists and Drug Companies Scheme to Avoid FDA Scrutiny and Exploit US Vaccine Programme Immunity Against the Public Interest
May 20, 2011
Just eight days after the Supreme Court of the United States ruling granting vaccine manufacturers virtual immunity over prosecution ( Bruesewitz v. Wyeth) , scientists and company representatives met at a congress in Baltimore to “Understand the Changes in the National Vaccine Plan to Maximize Government Sponsored Funding and Avoid FDA Scrutiny”. The “workshop” which took place on 2 March 2011 was the first event in a Vaccine Business Congress held under the auspices of the Institute for International Research USA . Amongst the many participants at the congress were representatives of Merck, GlaxoSmithKline, Sanofi Pasteur, Roche, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the Wellcome Trust, and the National Cancer Institute (NIH) (IIRUSA Welcome , IIRUSA Agenda ).

Partnerships between insurers and pharmaceutical companies
Four key stakeholders to watch:
  • Government agencies and lawmakers are increasingly committed to industry collaborations, demonstrated by the proposed 21st Century Cures Act and the collaboration roadmap produced by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) Office of the National Coordinator
  • Emboldened health insurers and pharmacy benefit managers are consolidating to protect their drug margins, enabling aggressive contracting and drug rebates
  • New entrants are filling evidence gaps by integrating consumer technology into the delivery of care
  • Consumer expectations and patient advocacy groups are pushing for further inclusion in the drug development and review process

Insurance Companies Encourage Doctors to Vaccinate
See this story, How Much Money Do Pediatricians Really Make From Vaccines?
After a reader sent us a link to a PDF file of Blue Cross Blue Shield’s Physician Incentive Program available online, Wellness & Equality learned that insurance companies pay pediatricians massive bonuses based on the percentage of children who are fully vaccinated by age 2.
Note especially the graphic of a page from the Blue Cross/Blue Shield Physician Incentive Program showing the vaccination schedule and the 63 percent "fully" vaccinated by age two.
