No-Cost Flu Shots and Other Immunizations

August 29, 2018

Applies to: Fully insured and self-insured groups with Horizon BCBSNJ medical benefits (excluding Medicare Advantage)

Immunizations are an important step in preventing illnesses and staying healthy. They are a covered service under members’ medical benefits.

To provide greater access to this service, Horizon Blue Cross Blue Shield of New Jersey’s in-state immunization network includes pharmacies in our medical network to provide immunizations throughout the year. These pharmacies can administer vaccines, including flu, shingles, hepatitis A and B, pneumococcal, human papillomavirus (HPV), tetanus and measles-mumps-rubella (MMR), and submit medical claims for these services.

The member cost share is determined by the immunization benefit on the member’s medical plan. In most cases, it is covered at 100 percent in accordance with Affordable Care Act requirements.

The New Jersey locations of the participating pharmacies listed below can administer vaccines.
