1 Seasonal flu shots are available for eligible members and covered at 100 percent for those members with a non-grandfathered plan. Members in self-funded plans should check with their plan administrator to determine if the vaccine and FluMist are covered benefits and, if covered, where they can receive the benefit at the lowest cost.
2 Each seasonal flu clinic has been allocated a supply of vaccine. Shots will be given on a first-come, first-served basis until the supply is depleted. A parent or legal guardian must accompany children ages 4-17 and provide written authorization (children under 4 should see their physician). The flu shots will be administered by representatives of Maxim Health Systems, a division of Maxim Healthcare Services. Members should refer to their benefit booklet for more information about their preventive care benefits. In the event that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that flu shots go to "priority groups" before the general public, Maxim will give priority to those who fit the CDC's high-risk criteria.
