Insurance Coverage for Student Rabies Immunizations

We recommend that you verify with your insurance provider that the pre-exposure rabies series is covered by your policy, and that you verify clinic locations where you may receive the covered immunization series.

Out of Pocket Options

Boynton Health Service and HealthPartners Occupational and Environmental Medicine Clinics are two options for receiving the rabies series or titer and paying out of pocket. The fees for these services are outlined below:

Boynton Health Service
If you are enrolled in the Student Health Benefit Plan, the cost of your vaccination is covered 100%. If you have private insurance, please check with your insurance carrier to see if they cover any portion. If not and you've paid your student service fees, please contact Boynton for your out of pocket cost.

HealthPartners Occupational and Environmental Medicine Clinics
$350 per shot or $1050 for the series
$80 for the titer

Scheduling: Please call 952-883-6999. You will need to identify yourself as a UMN Vet Med Student who will be paying out of pocket for the service.

Locations: Please see our Clinical Services page.

Compliance Tracking

For compliance tracking purposes, students in the DVM program are responsible for submitting a copy of your rabies series record including the date you received each immunization of the series to University Health and Safety—Occupational Health (UHS-OH). UHS-OH will document your compliance and provide your program with reports on your compliance status.
