Price Changes at Public Health

Prices for our services are set to change on October 1st. At that time we will begin charging an administration fee of $20 for all vaccine/vaccine components given. The cost of the vaccine themselves provided under the Vaccines for Children & Vaccines for Uninsured Adults is still $0. We accept Medicare, Medicaid, and some private insurances. We are contracted, in network providers for Blue Cross Blue Shield and WinHealth. We are working on contracting with United Healthcare but are not considered in network providers for this insurance company as of right now. We will post an announcement once that process is completed. If you have United Healthcare, please check your insurance plan to see if they will cover services provided by out of network providers before asking us to bill your services to United Healthcare. If they don’t allow you to use out of network providers, they may not cover services we provide to you.

Starting October 1st, we will also be implementing a sliding scale fee if you can’t afford the full administration fee. Please check out the fee update on each of our services pages on October 1st for up to date information on our costs.

Inability to pay will NOT prevent you from receiving services. If you cannot pay for services, we will not deny them to you. 

Thank you.
