It's not too late for a flu shot! Effective immediately, you can use your OptumRx card to obtain flu shots and other vaccines at participating pharmacies.  Previously, some claims had to be submitted through Blue Cross Blue Shield or UnitedHealthcare, but now you have the option of using your prescription drug coverage instead. Please note that for some (non-flu) vaccines to be covered you must meet eligibility requirements, including age. If you have questions about eligibility, please call the number on the back of your member card. Receiving a vaccine at your provider's office continues to be an option for all health plan participants.
