Routine Immunizations for K-12 Students
Parents are encouraged to contact their child's healthcare provider to make sure immunizations are up-to-date for school entry in the fall. North Dakota law states that a child may not be admitted to any public or private school, day care, Head Start program or preschool unless the child’s parent or guardian shows proof that the child has received the required immunizations. If your child has immunization exemptions, please submit an exemption form.
All children must be up-to-date according to the school immunization requirements or have claimed an exemption by October 1st of each school year or they must be excluded from school. Children in child care must be up-to-date or have claimed an exemption within 30 days of enrollment or be excluded from child care.
Paying for Vaccines
Vaccines for Children
FCPH offers the Vaccine for Children (VFC) program. We ask patients pay $20.99 to cover the cost of administration per vaccine. Children who qualify for VFC must be 18 years of age or younger and:
- Native American or Alaska Native
- Medicaid eligible
All Health Insurance Marketplace plans and most other private insurance plans must cover certain vaccines without charging a copayment or coinsurance when provided by an in-network provider. This is true even for patients who have not met a yearly deductible. Doses, recommended ages, and recommended populations for vaccinations vary. Check with your insurance provider for coverage details. Under the Affordable Care Act, insurance plans that cover children now allow parents to add or keep adult children on their health insurance policy until they turn 26 years old.
Medicare Part B will pay for the following:
- Influenza (flu) vaccines
- Pneumococcal vaccines
- Hepatitis B vaccines for persons at increased risk of hepatitis
Medicare Part D plans identify covered vaccines through formularies. Part D plan formularies must include all commercially available vaccines (except those covered by Part B). A new preventive vaccine may not specifically appear in the formulary, but the plan may still cover the vaccine. Contact your plan to find out about coverage.
Medicare Part D or Medicare Advantage Plan Part C that offers Medicare prescription drug coverage may also have coverage for the following:
- Zoster (shingles) vaccine
- MMR vaccine
- Tdap vaccine
Most state Medicaid agencies cover at least some adult immunizations, but some may not offer any vaccines. Check with your state Medicaid agency for more information.
If you serve in the military or are a military dependent, you are eligible for TRICARE. Under TRICARE, vaccines are covered according to the CDC recommended schedule.
If you do not currently have health insurance, visit HealthCare.gov to learn more about affordable health coverage options.
