do your part, get your flu shot

Getting the seasonal flu vaccine is more important than ever during this pandemic. You can help protect yourself and others from the flu virus by getting a flu shot.

stay safe

During your flu shot visit, remain diligent about preventing COVID-19 transmission. It’s a good idea to wear a mask, wash your hands and physically distance yourself from others. More information may be found on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention website.

still need help?

Getting your annual flu shot is one of the best ways to protect yourself and others from the flu virus. While it will not protect you from contracting COVID-19, it is still an essential part of protecting your health and the health of your loved ones, colleagues and friends. It also helps conserve health resources and supplies that could become increasingly scarce during this year’s cold and flu season.

For 2021, Chevron will not offer onsite flu shot clinics due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but there are still alternative ways for you to get a flu shot when and where it’s convenient for you. To learn about the flu shot options available to you, pick the scenario below that best applies to your situation: I have Chevron prescription drug coverage, I have Chevron medical benefits or I'm not enrolled in chevron medical coverage.

if you have coverage through express scripts

If you are enrolled in the Chevron Medical PPO, HDHP, HDHP Basic or Global Choice Plan* you have Chevron Prescription Drug Program coverage with Express Scripts. Effective February 15, 2021, the Prescription Drug program now provides coverage for influenza vaccines for enrolled participants as follows:
  • Covered immunizations can be received from a network pharmacy or an out-of-network pharmacy
  • Covered immunizations will be paid at 100% with no copayment/coinsurance and no deductible
  • When you visit an Express Scripts network pharmacy, you’ll need to present your Express Scripts ID card at the time of service.
  • If you visit an out-of-network pharmacy, you’ll have to pay the pharmacy at the time of service, then submit a claim to Express Scripts for reimbursement.
  • This coverage applies to you and any eligible dependents enrolled in your Chevron medical coverage.
  • Influenza and COVID-19 vaccines are examples of covered immunizations included on the Express Scripts Standard Preventive Drug List and/or qualifies as preventive care under the Affordable Care Act. 
  • Contact Express Scripts directly at 1-800-987-8368 if you have specific questions about covered immunizations. You can also locate a pharmacy or price a medication here (Select your plan to get started.)
You already have coverage for the flu shot as part of the standard preventive care coverage under your Chevron medical benefit (see medical section below for details). Your medical preventive care coverage isn’t changing and is still available. The only difference is that now you have more choices to get your flu shot, not only from your doctor’s office or a health clinic, but also a network pharmacy. 
 
*Reminder for Global Choice plan participants, the Prescription Drug Program with Express Scripts only applies to pharmacies and prescriptions obtained in the U.S. Cigna provides coverage for prescription drugs and pharmacies outside the U.S.

An influenza vaccine – or a flu shot – is considered preventive care by the Affordable Care Act. This means your Chevron medical plan provides 100 percent coverage for the flu shot with no deductible, copayment or coinsurance, if you see a network provider

  • It’s important to use a network provider because that’s the only way your plan will provide 100 percent coverage.
  • If you see an out-of-network provider (if allowed by your plan), you’ll typically pay a percentage of maximum allowable amounts and the annual medical deductible will apply.
  • This coverage applies to you and any eligible dependents enrolled in your Chevron medical coverage.
You may also have coverage for the flu shot from a local pharmacy under your prescription drug coverage. See the prescription drug section above for more details.

find a network provider

This means your medical plan, including a medical plan from another source, should provide 100 percent coverage for the flu shot with no deductible, copayment or coinsurance, if you see a network provider. Contact your medical carrier for details about your coverage.
