New COVID Shot Insurance Problems

(Washington, DC) — The new COVID shot rollout is running into snafus with some folks complaining they can’t get their insurance companies to cover the cost. The Department of Health and Human Services is on it. Its top brass wrote to insurance companies on Friday that their obligation is to provide coverage and to pick up the tab for COVID-19 vaccines without any cost-sharing. Those on Medicare or Medicaid are also entitled to free COVID shots as well as children and the uninsured through public-private partnerships.
