ATRIO Health Plans encourages you to get your Flu shot as soon as you can and your Pneumonia shot when recommended!
The flu is a serious disease that can make you very sick, result in hospitalization, or even lead to death from complications of the flu. Getting a flu vaccine is the single best way to reduce your chance of getting the flu and spreading it to your family, friends and others.
People who are at higher risk for getting flu-related complications include those 65 or older, and people who have certain medical conditions and chronic diseases including:
- lung disease (such as COPD and asthma, cystic fibrosis)
- heart disease
- weakened immune systems due to a medical condition or medication
- kidney disease
- liver disease
- blood disorders
- seizure disorders
- muscular dystrophy
- and others (talk with your doctor or ATRIO Nurse Case Manager for more information).
There is no cost to you and if you do have to pay for your shot, we will gladly reimburse you 100% of the cost!
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that all people age 6 months and older receive a flu shot every year and ATRIO Health Plans wants to make that as hassle-free as possible for our members!
Flu and Pneumonia vaccines are covered with no copay at most pharmacies and some doctor's offices.
