Billing Information

The Student Health Insurance Plan (SHIP) covers the flu vaccine 100% with no copay.  

We can bill TRICARE Standard and the following EPO and PPO plans: Care First Blue Cross Blue Shield, Aetna, Cigna and United Healthcare. If you do not have one of the listed insurance plans, please check your insurance company to verify your coverage (most insurance companies have a toll-free number located on the back of the card).

We can submit the bill to your insurance, upon request, if you present your insurance card prior to your appointment, though we can't guarantee that they will pay for the vaccine if we are not in the plan network.  If the claim is denied, you would receive a subsequent bill for the vaccine and administration.
