Flu Shots Free to KEHP Members

KEHP is pleased to announce all health plan members can receive a free flu shot beginning Sept. 15 through Dec. 15, 2011.

Flu shots and the nasal-spray vaccine are available at a variety of participating provider locations including: doctors' offices, health clinics, retail pharmacies, local health departments and other medical providers. KEHP members can go to any participating providers with Express Scripts Inc. (ESI) or Humana for flu shots and the co-pay will be waived.

If you are enrolled in the Commonwealth Optimum PPO or the Commonwealth Capitol Choice plan, there is no co-pay for either a flu shot or the nasal flu mist. Co-pays have been waived under both the medical and pharmacy benefit.

If you are enrolled in the Commonwealth Maximum Choice or the Commonwealth Standard plan there is no deductible or co-insurance for a flu shot or the nasal flu mist received at a retail pharmacy. The deductible and co-insurance have been waived.  Note:  Flu shots and nasal flu mist received from a medical provider (other than a pharmacy) are already payable at 100 percent.
