As of April 13, 2021, Children’s Mercy will bill for the cost of administering the vaccine. There will be no out-of-pocket cost for any vaccine recipient.
What will happen for those with insurance?
Vaccine recipients with insurance will not have any out-of-pocket costs for vaccine administration. If you have health insurance, you must provide that information at the time of scheduling and/or registration and we will bill your insurance
What will happen for those without insurance?
If you do not have insurance, we will submit your vaccine administration cost to the Provider Federal Uninsured program requesting reimbursement on your behalf. You will not incur any out-of-pocket cost.
What will happen if I receive an Explanation of Benefit (EOB) from my insurance showing that I owe a balance from my child’s COVID vaccine?
Your child’s insurance will be billed for COVID vaccine charges. However, any patient responsibility left from your insurance will not be billed to you on a statement.
Who can I call for questions related to COVID vaccine changes?
