Protect your health, get a flu shot today!

Where you get your flu shot affects your out-of-pocket cost and the cost to the State Plan!

$ Montana Health Centers - no cost to you, much less expensive for the State Plan.  See the two options below!
$$ Participating pharmacy - no cost to you (To find a participating pharmacy in your area, please contact Navitus, our pharmacy plan administrator), more expensive for the State Plan.  This is the best option for members who can't use the Montana Health Center options.
$$$ Your regular provider - You pay a $25 office visit copay.  The Plan pays for your visit and the shot.  This option can cost the Plan over $100!  Most expensive for the Plan.
$$$$ Non-participating pharmacy - You pay the full cost of the flu shot.
