Get Vaccinated

This year, receiving a flu shot is more important than ever. Not only does the flu shot protect you, but also your family, friends, co-workers, and communities. In addition, this simple act will also lessen the burden caused by influenza illness as the COVID-19 virus continues to circulate.

Flu shots are covered at 100% by the State Employee Health Plan for all members and dependents.
Health plan members on Plans A, C, J, N and Q are eligible to receive a flu shot covered 100% by the Health Plan preventative care benefit when received from a Network provider. Here’s how:

For All Health Plans:  If the member uses a Network provider and the only service billed is for the flu shot, the claim is paid in full by the health plan. If you receive a flu shot at a provider’s office and the provider bills for an office visit in addition to the flu shot, the member will be responsible for the office visit benefits that apply to your medical plan.  Ask the provider’s office how the service will be billed before services are provided. 

Flu shots are covered at 100% when provided by network providers only.  Each of the health plans uses a different Network of providers. The following information summarizes their Network options for flu shots. Many pharmacies across the state administer flu vaccine to adults. These are not network providers with your medical plan unless there is a contracting clinic within the pharmacy. If you have additional questions or need assistance in finding a Network provider, please call your health plan’s customer service at the number on the back of your ID card or listed below.

Aetna: Flu shots are covered when it is performed by an eligible Network provider.  Please make sure to check the Network listing for available providers.  Aetna indicates that along with physician offices, the following companies are also contracting to provide flu shots:

Please check each community location for specific age requirements related to children and adolescents. Make sure to present your Aetna member ID card to receive a flu shot. For questions on eligible providers, please contact Aetna Customer Service at: 1-866-851-0754.

Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas (BCBSKS): Flu shots are covered when it is performed by an eligible Network provider. BCBSKS contracts with most of the county health departments in Kansas.
