Immunizations are available for infants, children, adolescents, and adults. The Auglaize County Health Department follows the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Recommended Immunization Schedule for all vaccines. We participate in the Vaccine for Children (VFC) Program through the Ohio Department of Health.
No child who is eligible for VFC vaccines will be denied services for the inability to pay.
Meningococcal B is a “permissive” vaccination recommendation – different from the “routinely” recommended vaccines. It is advised to speak with your healthcare provider to decide whether to be administered the vaccine or not. For more information please check the Meningococcal forms in the Resource section.

How do I know if my insurance company will cover my visit?
Coverage varies with each insurance company and employer.
- The insurance company that issued your health insurance policy is the best source of information about your coverage. If you are covered under a group policy through work, your employer can tell you what is covered. In all cases, you are the "responsible party" - not your insurer. Therefore you are responsible for all payments for medical services, even if they are not covered services.
If you have Medical Mutual through Mercy Health/St. Rita’s Medical Center your services are not covered at our facility.
While we are contracted with Medical Mutual, we have been informed that Mercy Health/SRMC will only cover services provided by one of their locations/providers.
For your convenience, we offer a discounted cash day of service fee.
Will my insurance plan pay for my child's treatment?
Start by making sure that the treatment facility accepts your insurance plan. Each insurance plan is different. Even within the same company there may be several plans. One plan may cover a certain treatment while another does not. Also, just because a facility is listed in your plan, it may not be approved for ALL the services we offer. Contact your specific insurance plan to find out whether your child's treatment will be covered.
