Mollen Immunization Clinics Informative - It Is Up To You To Know What Your Insurance Coverage Is
Regarding payment for flu vaccine at mobile clinic. Some clinics have arrangements to bill certain companies for you. They should NEVER promise that an immunization is FREE. They have no way of know about your individual plan deductibles, co-pays etc. All plans will let you send in a receipt for consideration. You can download them or call your company and they will send you one. Medicare age people are the most confused. They buy Medicare Advantage programs and have know idea that they have sold their Medicare to BCBS or whoever, and they NO LONGER have Medicare.
I say to anybody that wants to know what they have to pay, call their insurance company. It is no more work than finding a doctor, hospital, lab, or radiology provider that takes your insurance. Otherwise you can make an appointment with your heathcare provider and go through the same thing. Then again if you need 'free' go to your local health department or check the local senior center.
Beware of ANY insurance program that does not cover flu vaccine. This is one of the cheapest ways for them to save money. If they scrimp on this I would worry what they might exclude if you have a real claim.
Life is just not that hard.
