Seasonal Flu Shots
MEA Benefits Trust works with Anthem and your local health care providers, or your school health services, to provide annual flu shot clinics.
Every MEA Benefits Trust plan includes 100% coverage for preventive benefits, including flu shots, to help members and their families stay healthy. The flu shot is free for MEA Benefits Trust members who get the flu shot at a school clinic, and there's no charge to the school district. Again this year, members can choose to get their flu shot at a school clinic, doctor's office or a retail clinic. It's very important that infants and children, seniors, pregnant women, travelers and people who have a weak immune system due to a disability or health issue get the vaccine.
Members who are on Medicare be sure to use your Medicare card to obtain your vaccination at no cost as a covered benefit.
Members can go to any Wal-Mart, Hannaford, Shaw's, Rite-Aid and CVS that are holding a flu clinic, to receive your flu shot at no charge. Be sure to present your MEABT/Anthem insurance ID card as the vaccination is a covered benefit.
If you go to a non-participating clinic click here to obtain a claim form for reimbursement.
* Note - some physicians do charge an office visit co-pay when they administer the flu shot. However, most physicians hold flu shot clinics and do not charge a co-pay if you are just receiving your vaccination as preventive care.
Call your doctor's office ahead to find out if your physician charges a co-pay.
