Tetanus Diptheria Booster
Amount: $30.00

Stepped on a rusty nail 10 years and 1 month after last tetanus booster. My co-pay was only $30, haven't seen the bill yet so I'm not sure what the total was. This (urgent care) clinic was amazing though. Super clean, very friendly staff, free coffee and snacks, TV and couch in every patient room... I went over lunch and was in and out in about 30 minutes. Best booster experience I've ever had.

Last December,I cut my leg. I had a tetanus vaccine last May with a shoulder surgery. The emergency room asked me it I had a recent tetanus vaccine at the time, but after recieving both hydromorphone and diazepam, I could of said anything. They charged me over a thousand dollars for a tetanus vaccine that I didn't even need. $290.00 of that cost was for the nurse to give the vaccine. After calling the billing office to dispute it, they would not call me back. I can see the cause of our current health care crisis . Ripping off the insurance companies. And the insurance companies willing to pay the extorsion instead of standing up for the consumer.

TDAP Vaccination
Amount: $203.00

Dr. encouraged getting TDAP. Since, I was to be around very young babies, I said ok. Was told by nurse it would for sure be covered by insurance and at most it might cost my $30 copay. Have spent since 11/30/11 just trying to file a dispute and getting anyone to call me back. Have received 3 bills and am afraid I'll have to pay or be sent to a collection agency.

Medical Facility/Clinic: Primary Care Physician,Wyncote PAInsurance: BRAVO Medicare Advantage Plan (Classic)
Although Bravo sent written letter recommending getting TD (tetnus & diptheria) shot, and sent out a case worker who said the same thing, doctor recommended TDAP Vaccine with pertussis vaccine also included this one time, even though I am over 65, with certain other medical issues. Still Bravo denied the claim stating doctor failed to get advanced permission. I am filing claims appeal.

Tetanus Booster
Amount: $750.00

Medical Facility/Clinic: John Dempsey Hospital ERInsurance: none
My Husband cut his finger at work and was bleeding profusely, so his boss took him to the ER. He received 9 stitches and a Tetanus booster. The entire bill was over $2000 and while workers comp will cover it my husband asked for an itemized bill. When we got it, we couldn't believe that they charged him $750 for a Tetanus shot! Is this normal for an ER bill? After seeing here what it costs through a Doctors office in my area, I think we are going to dispute this.

Tetanus booster only
Amount: $77.00

The insurance paid it, but I noticed on my statement of benefits that the clinic charged $22 and $55. When I called to ask why there were two immunizations listed, I was told one charge was for the shot and the other charge was for giving the shot. Really? Why not separate charges for the needle and bandaid too? Medical billing just seems like an out-of-control racket these days.

TDAP shot
Amount: $48.03

Medical Facility/Clinic: Community Health CenterInsurance: None
I went into this clinic for another purpose, and was asked if I also wanted a tetanus shot "as long as I was there". I said ok, and was not informed there was an extra charge, until I got a bill for $48.
I now know I could have gone to the County Health Department for a fee of $15 for the same thing.

We paid $80 cash for a tetanus booster. I called around and found another family practice offered it for $105. The urgent care clinic 20 miles away charges $45, and the county clinic charges $15!!! If I had known that, I would have gone the 25 miles.

Tetanus Diphtheria Pertussis
Amount: $121.00

Medical Facility/Clinic: Elkhart Clinic LLCInsurance: none
Puncture wound in hand while away from home. Paid additional $155 up front for "urgent care" treatment. Very disappointed in health care facility chosen. Cost seems way too much, and was not informed that I would receive an additional bill for Tdap vaccination booster. Also was charged $89.13 for x-rays taken to find a sliver of wood - seems to most reasonable people that wood would not show up on a standard x-ray. This is why our Health Care system is in such disarray.
