What if I was turned away due to lack of insurance or ability to pay the administration fee?

Healthcare facilities are permitted to charge an administration fee for the COVID-19 vaccine. However, Kansans are not responsible for paying the administration fee and cannot be denied a vaccine if they cannot afford the administration fee or do not have insurance. If you are eligible for the vaccine but are turned away for not paying, please call KDHE at 866-534-3463 or email.

 

Alternatively, you may contact the Kansas Insurance Department’s Consumer Assistance Division by phone at 800-432-2484, by email, or by filing a complaint on their website
