Measles Outbreak Compels Caduceus Medical Group To Cover Patient Cost for Vaccine

Share Article

Caduceus Medical Group, based in Orange County, Ca. has recently posted a medical alert county-wide in light of the recent outbreak of measles at nearby Disneyland. In an effort to quell the expected increase of measles cases across Orange County, Caduceus has decided to cover these patient costs for those that are unimmunized and at risk of contracting measles.

Caduceus Medical Director, Gregg DeNicola MD, adds, “We can see the consequences of a significant part of the population choosing to not immunize."

Caduceus Medical Group is now offering to pick up patient out-of-pocket costs for the measles (MMR) vaccine. This decision reaffirms Caduceus’ commitment to being one of the trendsetters in the medical field, putting “patients before profits” and reaffirming its commitment to protecting patients’ health regardless of out-of-pocket costs that may be incurred by Caduceus. Caduceus Medical Director, Gregg DeNicola MD, adds, “We can see the consequences of a significant part of the population choosing to not immunize, whatever the reasons. It is essential we immediately have all of our patients immunized to prevent this type of outbreak in the future. Caduceus will bear the cost of the vaccine up front to take responsibility in minimizing the spread of this outbreak.”

Both existing patients and those new to Caduceus that establish care at the time of the visit may take advantage of this update to the Caduceus vaccination policy, available at all office locations in Yorba Linda, Irvine, and Laguna Beach.

Caduceus Medical Group, an Orange County CA primary care, ob-gyn, pediatrics, and specialty medical group, has received extensive local and national news coverage for its unique approach to medical care, focusing on an effort to provide access to all through innovation and online complimentary concierge services. As one of the only remaining locally owned and managed medical groups in Orange County, providing the ultimate patient experience is critical for the group to continue to grow and thrive in the communities served.

Access to all is the cornerstone of its philosophy at Caduceus Medical Group. The group takes most forms of insurance and offers discounted cash pricing for those uninsured or underinsured. Caduceus is also participating in all plans and tier levels of the state exchange, Covered California.
