Did you/Will you pay a copay for the flu shot?

I was told we shouldnt have to, it should be free.
I called my Ped office and they said yes they charge the copay because the Dr checks their ears, etc. Chat Icon My boys very recently had well visits, why do Dr's do these quick "cha-ching" visits for themselves? Chat Icon

Our office doesn't charge. The nurse gives the shot, that's it.

If I went part as a well visit I don't have to. If I bring him in just for a shot I do.

How else are they going to buy their big fancy cars??? LOL yeah I agree it's silly. Matthew is getting his flu shot this month. I wonder if they will charge a copay. I haven't called and asked.

It depends on your insurance plan, we pay for well visits too.

We don't pay for well visits. But I wonder if we will be paying for this one.
