UHC 2017-2018 Flu Vaccination Program

UnitedHealthcare has assembled a broad-based approach to providing flu shot access for its members for the 2017-2018 flu season. 

Benefit Coverage 

Members should review their benefit plan to determine coverage for flu immunizations. Preventive services, including immunizations, are provided under the standard, fully insured UnitedHealthcare Certificate of Coverage (COC). Many self-funded customer plans also include coverage for approved flu immunizations, but are dependent upon benefit plan and may include member copayments or deductibles. 

  • Member cost for flu shots is the same for either walk-in vaccine or customer-sponsored flu clinics. While most plans cover flu shots, in certain cases member copayments and deductibles may apply. 
  • Members also can obtain flu shots through their health care provider’s office. When a member obtains a vaccine through their regular physician, it gives the physician an opportunity to engage the member in other prevention activities (e.g., annual physical). Office copayments and deductibles apply.
