By mid-2021, it is believed that FDA-approved COVID-19 vaccines will be available to the general public. Once available, under state and federal mandate, vaccines will be provided at no cost* to our members during the public health emergency.
Key facts about COVID-19 vaccines during the public health emergency:
- Multiple vaccine products are in varying stages of emergency use authorization review by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
- As the various vaccine products are authorized by the FDA for emergency use, they will be distributed according to a scheduled plan developed by the government, with high-risk groups receiving vaccinations first.
- Vaccines will be provided at no cost to our members.*
- Our members may access vaccines from any service provider that offers them, regardless of whether that provider participates with the health plan’s network.
*Members of a select number of “grandfathered” employer groups may need to pay a cost share for the administration of the vaccine. Please contact your account representative if you need detailed information or have questions.
