Flu shots are covered, but are considered preventative
service - under the medical plan, not the pharmacy plan. This means if you get
them at your doc’s office, they are a covered service. Getting them at the
pharmacy did not used to be a way to get them covered and paid for on the spot.
Great news! Pharmacies - in limited locations - have a special contract that
allows them to direct bill AETNA and our medical plan.
If you already got a flu shot at Costco or one of the other pharmacies that does
not yet have an agreement with the State and AETNA, you may send the receipt in
for reimbursement to AETNA under your medical plan.
If you have not yet received your flu shot, you may get them at the following
pharmacies in Alaska:
- Walgreens Pharmacy (the only pharmacy which can provide the high dose and
- Target Pharmacy
- Carr’s Pharmacy
