Prescott City Council Approves COVID-19 Vaccination Cost Reimbursement for Local Healthcare Providers
The Prescott City Council approved a reimbursement application process for local healthcare providers administering the COVID-19 vaccine in the Prescott area. Funding will come from the city’s general fund, which was freed up by last year’s receipt of AZ Cares funding to pay for emergency personnel responding to the pandemic.
Local healthcare providers seeking reimbursement for expenses related to administering the COVID-19 vaccine, can apply here.
Several items are important to note:
- Only one reimbursement of up to $100,000 per provider is available and applications will be received through June 30, 2021
- Healthcare providers must be vaccinating at least 2,000 people per week on average to be eligible
- Pharmacies are not eligible
The Council’s goal is to assist healthcare providers that have largely absorbed the cost of administering the vaccine and to bolster their efforts in administering large amounts of the vaccine. All reimbursement requests will be presented to the City Council for final approval.
