Clipped from: https://ldh.la.gov/news/6845
Medicaid has expanded its “Shot per 100,000” COVID-19 vaccine incentive program to include booster shots. Eligible members who already received a $200 incentive for their first or second dose of the COVID vaccine or the single dose COVID vaccine are now eligible to receive a second $200 incentive for receiving a vaccine booster dose.
This program is available to the following Medicaid members:
- Age 5 and older who were vaccinated with their first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on or after April 5, 2022.
- Age 6 months to age 4 who were vaccinated with their first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine on or after July 5, 2022.
- Age 6 months and older who received a vaccine booster dose on or after October 1, 2022.
Members are eligible for only one gift card for the first or second dose of the vaccine and only one gift card for receiving a booster shot.
Members can choose any vaccination location to receive their shot. Click here for a list of locations. Each health plan will distribute gift cards.
