How is RIVAP's Assessment Rate Determined?
RIVAP receives from the CDC the estimated vaccine costs for non-federally paid vaccines and allocates those costs across the estimated number of non-VFC eligible Rhode Island resident children and eligible Rhode Island resident adults. RIVAP computes a per child and per adult contribution enrollee per month assessment rate for each fiscal year. This computation includes reserves, as allowed by statute, to minimize the risk of having to make a supplemental assessment. Any excess funds are carried forward to reduce next year’s assessment. Links to the spreadsheets showing these computations can be found in the For Payers page.
