What can happen when I get my vaccines in a pharmacy?
After showing your Insurance ID to the pharmacist:
- The bill will be sent directly to the insurance company. You have nothing else to worry about.
- If the pharmacy system shows that the vaccine “is not covered” or the pharmacy is not in-network, please ask the pharmacist to contact the insurance company at 1-888-224-4875 (you can find this number on your Insurance ID, under “for providers” section). The insurance company will tell the pharmacist how to deal with the bill. You don’t need to pay for the bill.
- If you paid the bill by yourself. Please contact the pharmacy and use Super Bill to file a claim. The pharmacy will refund you directly after the claim is completed.
Can I get my vaccines at student health center?
Yes. However, sometimes you need to pay for the bill by yourself first and file a claim after your visit. It takes about one month to process the claim. A check will be sent to your address after the claim is processed. For specific instructions on how to file a claim, click here.
If you bring your Insurance ID and get vaccines in our in-network hospitals/pharmacies, you don’t need to pay for the bill.
