Regence Now Paying For Flu Shots Here!
8/17/2011

 

Regence is now paying for flu shots at our pharmacy!

 

2011 Update

As of 8-17-2011, all Regence members subject to the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act (PPACA - 2009 health care reform), which is most, will now be covered with a $0.00 co-pay at Island Drug.

 

2010 Update

Select Regence members are now eligible to receive their flu shot at Island Drug for a $0.00 copay, with more members being added soon.  This is the most recent list of eligible plans we have from Regence, but as they update this list we will reflect those changes here.  Please note; plans are listed below, but specific groups from these plans may or may not allow for this.  We will be happy to try and bill your specific plan at the time of your vaccination.

 

  •         All Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Oregon members;

  •         Regence employees and dependents (Regence BlueShield of Idaho, Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Utah, Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Oregon, Regence BlueShield  in Washington, Asuris Northwest Health, and Regence Life and Health); and

  •         Regence MedAdvantage + Rx and Asuris TruAdvantage + Rx members.


Flu shots billed for these members will adjudicate at a $0.00 copay.  All other Regence members who choose to receive a flu shot from our pharmacy may need to pay up front and submit for reimbursement (if paper claims are allowed) under their medical benefit.  
Due to health care reform mandates that will affect most groups with renewal effective dates of 10/1/2010 or later, there will be additional members throughout the flu season that will become eligible flu shot members.
