Learn About Your Flu Shot Benefit

The single best way to prevent the flu is to get your flu shot 

How flu shots are covered

Flu shots are covered under Medicare Part B (medical) coverage. When you get a flu shot, show your ID card for medical coverage — not your card for prescription drugs. 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone 6 months and older get the flu shot.

Options to get your flu shot with our Medicare Advantage plans:

  • Schedule an appointment with your doctor
  • Visit one of our in-network flu shot providers listed below
  • Our in-network flu shot providers bill us directly so you won’t have to pay upfront.
