Medicare first quarter statements are coming out , it shows the amount for each vaccine etc.

So how does Medicare know i got my shot?  No one asked for insurance info.  We got our shots through our municipal government. They have our name and dob maybe address (can't recall),  but no insurance.   Medicare is not efficient enough to figure it out without more info.

If there is no insurance, the govt pays for it.  I’m not sure if it’s state or federal.

 

 

Govt is paying for all of them.

And what about those like my kids who are not old enough for Medicare.  I assume if you get it through a government site, no insurance but if you get it at pharmacy then they probably ask for insurance info.

While the vaccine is free, there is another fee for administering them.  It is charged to your insurance.  But if you don’t provide insurance info, the govt pays for it

I asked my kids yesterday both are nurses and both had to show they insurance card.

 

I don't know how things are handled in your state.    

 

In oHIo the providers are charging anywhere from $18.50 to now what I see is $30

NCL just set itself up as the "cruise lines that hates families" with that proposal.

 

 

I see it differently........NCL set itself up as the cruise line that is doing everything possible to provide a safe environment for their crew and passengers.

 

This is the only way to go to get this cruise industry sailing again. Give the cruise lines some slack to do everything in their power to keep Covid off their ships.

If you did not give you medicare or other insurance card then it is being paid directly out of federal covid funds.

We never signed anything.

Did you register on line? That is what I did and I did not sign anything either at the time of my vaccinations.

That's what I figure.  They made the process very simple.  Made our appointment online for 1st shot.  Showed up at the civic center.  Had our temperature taken, checked in, followed signs to pu our clipboards to complete our medical info, went to the entrance for shots, sent to a nurse, got our shots, went to waiting area, then home.  I had to wait 30 minutes because of allergies.   On our way home less than 1 hour after arriving.   2nd shot about the same.

And who exactly is going to figure out the card is forged?  Let's say, for the sake of argument...

 

A) Person A has a faked immunization card (which is not really hard to do).

B) Person A uses that fake card to:

  • Go on a cruise
  • Attend a ballgame
  • Go to college

No one is even going to do more than take a quick look at the card.  But, let's say Person A comes down with Covid, or someone Person A was around comes down with Covid.

 

Do you REALLY think someone will think "hey, this card might be faked, let's start tracking down the information (that may or may not be available)!"  Or will they think "Person A fell in the 5% of people who the vaccine doesn't work for."?

 

Again, just because you get the vaccine does NOT mean you won't get Covid.  It reduces the possibility (but not to 0) and reduces severity.  Doesn't mean you can't get it and test positive. 

If person A gets very sick with Covid symptoms, that will be cause to determine if the vaccine card was forged.

We weren't even asked for insurance info and the form we filled out to schedule our appointments didn't ask for insurance info.

A covid vaccine record  has been loaded into state websites.  I dont work for the cruise line but I would think if it is an issue with an falsified vaccine record, the medical personnel on the ship may be able to verify using a titer draw or checking state records if from US.  

Here is how your vaccination is tracked.......

Immunization Registry

I had mine at a hospital. They asked for my card but they would have given the vaccine without insurance. Hospitals, pharmacies, places that normally take insurance will ask for your card if you have one.They are set up to take insurance.  They probably get paid faster and less paperwork if they use an insurance card. County health departments and mass sites don't usually ask for insurance cards. Those sites have no system to process insurance cards. I think either way the government is paying.

Exactly because the data needs to be sent to the manufacturer for determining efficacy. If someone comes down with Covid after being fully vaccinated, that will go into the database that is tracking efficacy for full authorization.

NO... But there was a series of ORAL questions asking about your health care coverage, , the name and policy numbers, along with ORAL questions about your general health and also a VERBAL disclaimer with the warnings..  If you experienced anything different you should report it to the C.D.C. because that would be a violation in the immunization protocol.

We are both fully vaccinated and registered online thru our county dept of health.    At the time we got the email to schedule our appt. I didnt have insurance card to input policy number online.  It let me skip over and schedule.

No one at the vaccine site asked for insurance.  

We were given a paper with less than 10 questions to answer about medical.  Majority of them were covid related questions or asked if any allergies.  No other medical details were asked of either of us.   Except was I pregnant or breastfeeding.

After seeing some of these replies, I have a pretty good idea of who possibly is an expert in smuggling booze on a ship.

It also confirms my belief that they outlawed the Darwin Affect several years back; cant believe I missed the memo about that.

The federal government will not mandate the use of vaccine passports for travelers or businesses post-pandemic, President Biden's chief medical adviser, Dr. Anthony Fauci, told the Politico Dispatch podcast Monday.

 

Looks like the vaccination issue can be put to bed. Good.

I bet the cruise lines are happy about this also.

That's all well an good for people coming into the United States but what about the countries the ships go to that may require vaccine passports or something similar to enter their country?

And it's becoming more apparent everyday that a number of EU countries are going to require some kind of proof of vaccination upon entry.
