FAQ
I don’t have insurance and I can't afford to pay the administration fee. What can I do?
It's not the Grant County Health Department’s intent to turn away patients in need. We have a financial hardship policy that can be filled out and reviewed by our staff. You may qualify to have the vaccine administration fee waived if approved.
I have insurance, but have a high deductible and I will have to pay out of pocket. What can I do?
It's not the Grant County Health Department’s intent to turn away patients in need. We have a financial hardship form that can be filled out and reviewed by our staff. You may qualify to have the vaccine administration fee waived, if approved, which would help lower the cost. The cost of the vaccine will have to be paid out of pocket though.
I called my insurance company and they said vaccines are not covered for my child. What can I do?
We will give children 18 and younger a different stock of vaccines given to us from the CDC. You will be responsible for the administration fee. If you can't afford the administration fee, a financial hardship form can be filled out and reviewed by our staff. You may qualify to have the vaccine administration fee waived if approved.
Do you take Health Saving Accounts (HSA) as a payment method?
Please find out your maximum daily limit first. Sometimes H.S.A.'s are processed through our credit card vendor and other times they will not work. We are looking into other options for the issue at this time.
What if you do not accept my insurance?
Unfortunately, you will have to go somewhere that accepts it or you can pay out-of-pocket. Another option is that we can give you an itemized list to turn into your insurance company for reimbursement.
My child has Medicaid. Will I have to pay anything?
No, if Medicaid is your primary insurance company, there will be no out of pocket expense to you. If Medicaid is NOT your primary insurance company, there may be some expense to you.
What if I cannot bring my child in?
We must have a note from you, the parent, as-well-as a photo ID of the person bringing the child, insurance card for the child, and their vaccination record. You must pull off the insurance paperwork from the website, or you can pick it up in the office ahead of time, fill it out, and send that with your child. If we do not have this your, child will not be able to receive any vaccines.
