As an Innovative Express Care travel medicine patient, you will receive one-to-one counseling from a trained medical professional whose specializes in travel medicine and immunizations. We have the most up-to-date travel health information from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and world health surveillance sources who monitor outbreaks and other health hazards.
We provide personalized travel health consultations
Travel medicine patients receive an official immunization record to keep with their travel documents. We’ll also provide you with a personalized itinerary with specific health and travel information for the countries on your itinerary, consular information, general travel advice, and tips for avoiding common illnesses like traveler’s diarrhea.
Our travel medicine services may include:
Vaccines for travel
Dengue fever prevention
Malaria prevention and medication
Traveler’s diarrhea prevention and medication
Destination warnings and alerts (including information about the coronavirus)
Telemedicine consults if you get sick while you are traveling
Unfortunately, many insurance companies do not pay for travel vaccines. This makes no sense since traveling unvaccinated could lead to illnesses that would cost them much more. Still, with the exception of Blue Cross Blue Shield PPO, most don’t cover travel vaccines.
If you are a BCBS patient, we will submit the vaccination cost to your insurance. If you have another insurance provider, you may use your insurance for the provider appointment, but you’ll need to pay for the vaccinations at the time of service.
Travel vaccine costs are as follows:
Hepatitis A: $130
Yellow Fever: $225
One time vaccination administration fee: $25
Lastly, the provider visit is really important. Here we can discuss Malaria prophylaxis, possible diarrhea medications (just in case that Montezuma’s Revenge comes back), plane anxiety if needed, and even refill your chronic medications.
After you book your appointment, it always helps if our provider can get some questions answered prior to your visit.
