CommunityCare offers worksite flu shot clinics for contracted employer groups with a minimum of 25 participants at each employer location. Participants can include employees, spouses and dependents age 9 or older. Because children ages 6 months through 8 years receiving the influenza vaccine for the first time (and some in this age group who have previously been vaccinated) require two doses of vaccine administered at least four weeks apart, those individuals are not eligible to receive flu shots through the worksite vaccination program. The quadrivalent flu vaccine will be administered.
Employees enrolled with CommunityCare who want to receive a flu shot through the worksite vaccination program must present their CommunityCare ID card at the time the shot is administered. The flu shot provider will file a claim with CommunityCare for payment.
Two payment options are available to employers who choose to make the worksite vaccination program available to employees who are NOT enrolled with CommunityCare:
- The flu shot provider can invoice the employer $35 for each employee who receives a flu shot; or
- The flu shot provider can collect $35 (cash or check) from the employee at the time of service.
Additional Fees May ApplyThe contracted provider will invoice the employer in the following situations.
- If a minimum of 25 vaccinations are not administered per location ($50).
- If less than 25 injections are administered per hour ($50 per hour).
- If the provider travels outside a 25 mile radius of downtown Tulsa ($50 trip charge).
If the flu shot provider provides additional services, such as B12 shots or other immunizations, the employer or employee is responsible for payment.
Flu Shot Administration by Non-Contracted Flu Shot Providers
CommunityCare does not pay for flu shots administered by a provider who is not contracted with CommunityCare to provide flu shot services at worksite clinics. Not all flu shot providers are contracted to provide the flu shot at worksites. By completing the request form below, you will be contacted by a CommunityCare provider who is contracted to administer flu shots at worksites.
Other opportunities to receive a flu shot:
CommunityCare enrollees can receive a free flu shot at their CommunityCare contracted primary care physician or specialist's office, at any CommunityCare contracted urgent care facility or any health department. In addition, CommunityCare enrollees can receive a free flu shot at CommunityCare contracted pharmacies that administer flu shots. (Please note: A copay may be incurred for the doctor's office visit, but no fee is charged for the flu vaccine.)
The CDC recommends that everyone age 6 months and older get a flu vaccine every season. This is not the case with all vaccines, such as pneumonia and herpes zoster (i.e., shingles). Members should talk with their physician about which vaccines are recommended for them.
The CDC recommends a pneumococcal vaccination for all babies and children younger than 2 years old and all adults age 65 or older. In certain situations, other children and adults should also get pneumococcal vaccines. Members should consult with their physician to find out if the pneumonia vaccine is recommended for them. CommunityCare members can receive a pneumococcal vaccine at their CommunityCare contracted primary care physician or specialist's office, at any CommunityCare contracted urgent care facility or any health department. In addition, CommunityCare enrollees can receive a pneumococcal vaccine at contracted pharmacies that administer pneumococcal vaccines.
The CDC recommends the shingles vaccine for those age 60 years or older. CommunityCare members can receive a shingles vaccine at their CommunityCare contracted primary care physician or specialist's office, at any CommunityCare contracted urgent care facility or any health department.
