The Department of Health Care Services (DHCS) strongly recommends that all Managed Care Plan (MCP) network providers report immunization information within 14 days of administering an immunization.
The following requirements apply to both pharmacists and physicians:

  • Timely provision of immunizations in accordance with the most recent schedule and
    recommendations published by ACIP—regardless of a member’s age, sex, or medical
    condition, including pregnancy

  • Documentation of each patient’s need for ACIP-recommended immunizations as part of
    all regular health visits
  • Report the administration of any vaccine within 14 days to the appropriate
    immunization registry. The local immunization registry for San Joaquin and Stanislaus
    Counties is Regional Immunization Data Exchange (RIDE). For more information, please
    see below:

Health Plan of San Joaquin is dedicated to providing all members the best health care available in the most effective and efficient manner. If you have questions, please contact our Customer Service Department at 209-942-6320.
