Greenhouse Internists uses a third party vendor, Vaxcare, for our vaccines. We can only administer vaccines that are covered in Vaxcare’s system. For example, insurance plans such as Keystone First, Health Partners, and Amerihealth are not contracted with Vaxcare. We will check your eligibility before scheduling your appointment. If you are ineligible for a vaccine from Vaxcare, we recommend that you call your insurance company to verify your coverage and then go to a local pharmacy for the vaccine.
In response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Greenhouse Internists has made some changes in our office and in the way we provide medical care to our patients during this difficult time. Click here to read more about our new office hours, office policies, and telehealth services.
