ABC News: Moderna says its COVID vaccine will remain free for all consumers, even those uninsured

Moderna has announced that it will continue to offer its COVID-19 vaccine in the US for free even after the federal government stops funding it. This announcement comes after the company faced criticism for reportedly considering a significant price increase for its vaccine. Under the new policy, Moderna’s vaccine will be available to all Americans regardless of their ability to pay, with insurance companies required to cover the cost for insured individuals and Moderna’s patient assistance program offering the vaccine for free to uninsured or underinsured individuals. The move is expected to help ensure that all Americans have access to the vaccine as federal funding for vaccines dries up, and uninsured individuals would have to pay out of pocket for their boosters.
