Learn About Your Flu Shot Benefit

Flu shots are covered under Medicare Part B (medical) coverage. When you get a flu shot, show your ID card for medical coverage. Prescription drug plans (PDPs) don't cover flu shots. 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


1.  Schedule an appointment with your doctor

Visit your doctor before the flu season begins. Don't have a doctor?


Search online to find one in our network


2.   Get a flu shot out of network

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


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

3.   Get your flu shot at a pharmacy
