What's True About the Flu Program

Getting a flu shot is easy and convenient for State Health Plan members through Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina's "What’s True About the Flu" program. Members eligible for the "What's True About the Flu" program are members on the 80/20 Plan and the 70/30 Plan. This program will run from September 16 through December 31, 2019.

Getting Your Flu Shot

The flu vaccine may be available at no charge to all Plan members when you receive a shot at a worksite clinic, any in-network doctor's office, in-network health department, participating Convenience Clinic, or through a participating North Carolina immunizing pharmacist. You may be responsible for the applicable copay or coinsurance for your flu shot. This will depend on your provider or site of service. For a list of current worksite flu shot clinics, click here.
