How to Find Your Legislator

If you have questions about your district or legislator, contact your local or regional Legislative Information Office (LIO) for more information.

See legislators by district.

Flu Shots
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 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 FluMist vaccines)
- Target Pharmacy
- Carr’s Pharmacy

The FluMist vaccine (nasal spray) is approved for members age 2 to 49 and is also considered a preventive service. Anyone outside of that age group would be considered experimental and not covered.
