Vaccines are offered by all of the local health departments to anyone 5 and over now, by appointment.
The COVID-19 vaccine is free, however, healthcare providers are allowed to bill your insurance for an administrative fee. Insurance plans and government payer sources are required to cover administrative fees with no out-of-pocket expense to patients.This fee helps offset the costs associated with vaccine administration, vaccine handling and storage, etc. SIH is committed to making sure patients don’t pay an administrative fee. Should you receive a bill, or notice from your insurance company or other payer source that an administrative fee is being applied toward your deductible, please call 800.457.1393, Monday through Friday, 8 am to 4:30 pm or use MyChart to submit a customer service inquiry at any time.
If you are an SIH patient, we encourage you to sign up for a MyChart account. MyChart is the most efficient way to be notified of COVID-19 vaccine availability. If you have problems activating your account, call the SIH MyChart Liaison at 618-457-5200 ext. 67123.
