Flu vaccinations and insurance companies: Gah


I just got my annual flu vaccination at Bartell Drugs. $29.99. It was quick and easy.

My employer-provided insurance company, United Healthcare, won’t cover it. Why? Because it wasn’t done in a doctor’s office.

Same vaccination, no difference in effectiveness, but it’s covered only if administered by a doctor.

This is insanity.
