As of January 1, 2012 due to a budget cut, VFC vaccines are no longer available in our offices for under-insured children.
Those who are under-insured can still receive VFC vaccines but only at Federally Qualified Health Centers (FQHC) or Medicare Certified Rural Health Centers (RHC).
A patient is considered under-insured when they are insured with a commercial insurance and meet one of the following criteria:
No vaccine coverage
The insurance covers only certain vaccines
- Have a minimum yearly limit for vaccines. After that is met, there is no vaccine coverage.
Those patients who have Medicaid, Chip or do not have any insurance will still be able to get VFC vaccines at a Wasatch Pediatrics Office.
WE WANT TO HELP CHILDREN.......Each year the employees of Wasatch Pediatrics participate in charity service to support organizations that benefit children in need. If you have a favorite children's charity that you would like us to support, we welcome your suggestions. Please contact Janis at 801-453-9626.
