for U.S.-payroll employees and expatriates on assignment in the U.S.

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.

still need help?

Protecting yourself and others from the flu starts with your annual flu shot. Getting a flu shot is the most effective way to prevent illness that’s caused by the flu virus. Through Chevron, U.S.-payroll employees have access to multiple options that makes getting a flu shot simple, quick and easy this year. To learn about the 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, I'm not enrolled in Chevron medical coverage, or Onsite flu shot clinic.

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. The Prescription Drug program 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 if you have specific questions about covered immunizations. You can also locate a pharmacy or price a medication here.

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 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.

medical HMO plan

If you are enrolled in a Chevron Medical HMO Plan, contact your Medical HMO directly for information about flu shot coverage under your plan. 


global choice plan

If you are an expatriate enrolled in the Global Choice Plan, if you receive a flu shot from a pharmacy in the U.S., your Express Scripts coverage as described above will apply. For information about flu shot coverage when received outside the U.S., contact Cigna.

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.

If you have chosen to waive Chevron medical coverage, there are other alternatives for getting your flu shot this fall.

ask your medical plan provider

Remember, a flu shot is considered preventive care by the Affordable Care Act. 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.
