Flu is here: time to get your patients in for shots


Are you doing all you can to see that your patients are getting flu shots?

Connecticut is already seeing “sporadic” flu activity this season, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Nationwide, about 30 adults have already died from the flu, and the first child death has been reported in Florida by The New York Times.

For most ConnectiCare members, there is no copayment, coinsurance or deductible for a visit that is only to get a flu shot. Here are the codes we cover for the influenza vaccine.

Remember, the CDC recommends that everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every year by the end of October.
