Giving your members access to immunizations under the pharmacy benefit
The seasonal vaccine program under pharmacy benefits gives members access to convenient immunization at pharmacies. The Public Health Emergency expired May 11th, 2023, but many pharmacies still have ample supply of the government funded COVID-19 vaccines. Once these supplies are exhausted, members will be responsible in providing insurance when getting a COVID-19 vaccine. Members can only receive coverage at a pharmacy if they have the seasonal vaccine benefit under their pharmacy or medical plan.
Previous years have shown that members with vaccine coverage only elected under their medical plan have encountered difficulties at a pharmacy when trying to receive coverage under their pharmacy plan. By having the vaccine program under both your medical and pharmacy plan, it will create a seamless member journey at either a provider’s office or pharmacy location.
To ensure that all members have a seamless member journey when receiving a flu, COVID-19, or other seasonal vaccines this year, Aetna is adding the seasonal vaccine coverage to your pharmacy plan starting September 1st, 2023.
Book rates for Aetna will be provided on the B&P website when they are available.
