Access to Vaccinations for UHC
In Dec. 2018, UnitedHealthcare expanded coverage for the influenza vaccine under the pharmacy benefit for fully insured members. UnitedHealthcare is expanding coverage further for the influenza vaccine and adding other preventive vaccines to the pharmacy benefit for members.
Expanding the availability of preventive vaccines under the pharmacy benefit increases member access to the vaccines from 30,000 dispensing retail pharmacies to 50,000 pharmacies.
Preventive vaccines will still be $0 copay for members and will bypass deductibles.
