Billing and Insurance

COVID-19 vaccines are no longer provided free of charge from the federal government. Patient’s insurance will be billed for the vaccines. Most insurers will cover vaccine fees, but some do not. Before your visit, call the customer service number listed on your insurance card to find out if your plan covers these fees.
