It’s Time to Get Your Flu Shot

10/9/2017

Flu Season is Right Around the Corner and it's Time to Get Your Flu Shot

  

Active and Non-Medicare Eligible Retiree Members

A flu shot is the best way to protect against the flu and this is the time of year when you should think about protecting your family by getting a flu shot.  The PEBTF and the REHP provide you with this important preventive care benefit and two convenient ways for you to get your flu shot. 

  • 1. At your doctor's office: Present your medical plan ID card. There is no cost for the immunization but your doctor may choose to charge an office visit copay, if applicable.
  • 2. At a CVS Caremark Flu Shot network pharmacy: For members age 9 and older - present your prescription drug ID card. There is not cost for the flu shot.

You can go to any pharmacy that participates in the CVS Caremark Flu Shot network to receive your shot.  The Flu Shot network includes most chain pharmacies such as Acme, Giant, Giant Eagle, Target, Weis Markets and Rite Aid, in addition to CVS pharmacies and many independent pharmacies.  Call or stop by your local pharmacy to make sure they have the flu shots in stock, and that they participate with CVS Caremark Flu Shot Program for insurance.  

You may call CVS Caremark at 1-888-321-3261 if you have any questions.

Medicare-Eligible Members

The REHP provides you with this important preventive care benefit as part of the benefits you receive from your Medicare health plan.

You are able to get your flu shot from your doctor.  Some of the Medicare plans may offer other alternatives such as getting your flu shot at certain pharmacy chains.  For more information, contact your medical plan by calling the phone number that appears on your medical ID card.
