Changes in Eligibility Requirements for Vaccinations

January 18, 2012
By

01/19/12 As of February 1, 2012 the Indiana State Department of Health will be changing the guidelines for free immunizations at all local Health Departments.  If you have medical insurance coverage you should call your insurance provider to obtain immunization coverage information. 

The new requirements for children age birth through 18 years are:

If your insurance covers vaccinations partially or fully – you are not eligible for vaccinations at your local Health Department.  You should contact your medical provider for your vaccine needs.

If your insurance cap on vaccines has been met – you are eligible for vaccinations at your local Health Department.

If your insurance does not cover vaccinations – you are eligible for vaccinations at your local Health Department.

If your children are covered by Medicaid (regular or package C or secondary) you are eligible for vaccinations at your local Health Department.

If you are uninsured – you are eligible for vaccinations at your local Health Department.

If you are a Native American or Alaskan Native – you are eligible for vaccinations at your local Health Department.

On February 1, 2012 the Marshall County Health Department will begin charging $8.00 per shot, with a $50.00 cap per family.  Vaccine will be given to eligible children regardless of the ability to pay the new fee.
