Travel Clinic Insurance Information

Travel Clinic billing and collection fees

The Travel Clinic bills all ADC contracted insurance companies for routine immunizations.  The department also collects the fee for Traveler’s Education (if applicable) and collects payment for all travel immunizations regardless of insurance.

Traveler’s Education fees

  • $55
    Detailed Traveler Education
    Review of itinerary to determine the need for medications or immunizations as well as pertinent travel advice

    Medication visit or brief immunization encounter.

Routine immunizations are filed to insurance companies with which ADC is contracted.

    If the person falls outside of routine criteria, they will need to pay at the time of service.

Travel immunizations will no longer be filed to any insurance companies.

The fees for these will be collected at the time of service.

  • Meningococcal (considered a routine vaccine for some age groups)
    If the traveler fits routine criteria, we will file it to insurance

Medicare and The Travel Clinic

Medicare does not cover the majority of Travel Clinic services, and patients with Medicare as their primary insurance will be asked to pay for non–covered services at the time of the appointment.

However, patients with Medicare will not have to pay for Zostavax (the shingles vaccine) at the time of their appointment ($265). The Travel Clinic will file with Medicare & then to their secondary insurance company. If their secondary declines to cover the vaccine the patient will be billed.

Refer to our insurance section for information on what insurances we can file. Also, check with the appointment scheduler to see if your visit will be filed with insurance.
