Getting a flu shot is easy and convenient for State Health Plan members through Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina's "What’s True About the Flu" program. Please note the 2017 program has ended. Members eligible for the "What's True About the Flu" program are members on the 80/20 Plan and the 70/30 Plan. Members of any of the UnitedHealthcare Medicare Advantage Plans should contact them directly for flu shot information:
The flu vaccine is available at no charge to all Plan members when you receive a shot at a worksite clinic, any in-network doctor's office, in-network health department, participating Convenience Clinic, or through a participating North Carolina immunizing pharmacist. Members on the 70/30 Plan may be subject to a copay. You may also contact Customer Service at 888-234-2416 to find out which North Carolina pharmacies in your area have an immunizing pharmacist.
