The flu affects millions of people each year and can result in severe illness — even death. A flu vaccine is the best defense to not only protect you, but also help protect the people around you. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends annual flu vaccinations for everyone six months and older.
Your UnitedHealthcare plan covers annual flu shots at 100 percent when you use a contracted network provider. Bring your health plan ID card with you and tell your provider the flu shot is covered under your medical benefits, not your pharmacy benefits. Use the UnitedHealthcare claim form to ask for payment for eligible care you’ve already received.
Flu shots will also be available at the Wellness Fair on October 25.
