Measles Vaccination Coverage

Measles Vaccination Coverage

Measles Vaccination Coverage, Industry News,

The nation’s worst measles outbreak in 25 years has reached California, with recent cases reported in San Francisco, San Mateo and Butte counties.

The CDC says the majority of people who get measles are unvaccinated and the disease can spread when it reaches a community where groups of people haven’t received the MMR vaccine.

According to the Texas Department of Health and Human Services, if someone has the disease, 90 percent of people around that person who are not immune will become infected.

Carriers are reporting an increase in questions about measles vaccination coverage from members. Employers may be getting the same questions.

Your clients can rest assured knowing that all California Small Group health plans include measles vaccinations from in-network providers as a preventive benefit with no member cost-sharing. For details, view the group’s plan Summary of Benefits and Evidence of Coverage.
