Colitis treatment in Arizona’s Phoenix area can cost thousands of dollars
(AP) Colitis can cost $6,800 to $15,000 for a flu shot, according to a report from the Arizona Department of Public Health.
The cost of the shot could be even higher if the doctor has to perform a CT scan.
The study also found that in some parts of the state, including Phoenix, the cost of treatment is more than double that of what is covered by insurance.
The state’s insurance system covers treatment for about 30 percent of the cost.
The state said the cost for treatment is calculated using the average cost of other treatment in the state of $1,400.
That is the same as what Medicare pays for in the Phoenix area.
The study did not provide a breakdown of the costs for other treatments.
The report says the average price of the treatment is higher than the cost insurers cover for all their patients.
Arizona’s insurance carrier covers most of the rest of the bill.
The report also found some Phoenix areas are not covered by Medicare.
It does not include the costs of emergency care or care for people who are blind.
The Arizona Department for Health Services said its office received more than 400 reports of flu shots in Phoenix, about two-thirds of them from the public health department.
About 15 percent of those cases were from people who had been vaccinated before the pandemic began, the department said.
The department said it will work with insurance companies to provide free flu shots to low-income families with children.
The department also is working with insurers to offer discounted flu shots.
