The Warrick County Health Department
can still provide immunizations for your children. We just have some new
guidelines and new ways to provide this service.
-If you have private insurance,it is
imperative that the insured contact their insurance company to verify
coverage for immunizations. Please be
aware, if the insurance provider does not cover vaccinations you will
receive a bill for the vaccines your child received from a third party
billing company and vaccines can be very costly. You will need
to bring your insurance card at the time of your appointment so
insurance verification can be obtained.
-For those with no insurance, those on
Medicaid or Hoosier Healthwise or those whose insurance does not cover
immunizations everything has stayed the same. We will need a copy of
the Medicaid card.
-As always you must bring your
-If you do not have your insurance
card, Medicaid card and immunization record you will be asked to
reschedule and return when you have those available.
