Question: 

Should my doctor be charging me $15 just to administer the HPV shot? I’m already paying $180 per shot, why isn’t the administration fee covered by msp

Answer: 

Some doctors and pharmacists charge an administration fee and it is not covered by MSP. Some health care plans will cover the cost or part of the cost of the vaccine if you have a prescription. Check with your plan provider.
