Flu and shingles shot benefits

As we get older, our immune systems weaken. That’s why it’s so important to get the vaccinations your doctor recommends. 

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

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends everyone 6 months and older get the flu shot. Your Aetna plan covers this service under your Part B (medical) coverage. When you get your shot, show your member ID card for medical coverage. How you get your shot is your choice.

Schedule an appointment with your doctor

Visit your doctor before flu season begins. If you don’t have a doctor yet, use the online tool below to search for one in our network.

Visit an in-network pharmacy

Our in-network flu shot providers bill us directly, so you won’t have to pay upfront. This isn’t a complete list of participating pharmacies in our network. Call the number on your member ID card if you don’t see yours.

Get a flu shot out of network

You can also go to a flu shot provider that is not in our network. With this option, you must:

 

  • Send a copy of your receipt to the claims address on your Aetna ID card 

  • Include your member ID on the receipt

Help protect yourself from shingles by getting your shot

 

Zostavax® and Shingrix are both covered under Medicare Part D benefits at preferred brand cost share. We encourage you to get your Part D vaccines at network pharmacies for cost savings and convenience (you won’t need to submit a paper claim form).
