is now paying for flu shots at our pharmacy!
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.
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
BlueCross BlueShield of Oregon members;
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
MedAdvantage + Rx and Asuris TruAdvantage + Rx
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.
