IMPORTANT: Please note that health insurance providers do NOT typically cover travel medicine vaccinations and related services. Patients should be aware that payment is due in full at the time of service.
However, post-travel evaluation and treatment is also available through this service for those who may have encountered medical problems DURING or AFTER travel. If this is the case, patients may need a referral, as it would likely be covered by insurance if the patient is now ill. Travelers should check with their insurance company prior to scheduling an appointment.
