Health Insurance and Billing Practices

In order to comply with Medicaid rules, the Health Department’s immunization clinic must request insurance or payment for services given to adults (age 19 and over). If you have health insurance, the Health Department will bill your insurance. You will not be charged a copayment. If you are over 19 years of age and you do not have health insurance or do not want your insurance billed, the Health Department will ask for a sliding scale fee based on family size and annual income. Clinic staff will not ask for proof of family size and income, and services will be provided regardless of ability to pay.

Adults who are currently enrolled in a post-secondary educational program and who receive the MMR vaccine as part of school requirements do not have to pay a fee. See links below for more details.
