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 Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) 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.

Options to get your flu shot with our Medicare Advantage plans

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

  • Include your member ID on the receipt
