Help keep your child healthy

Call your health care provider and schedule your child’s next appointment for immunizations.

Many diseases are controlled as a result of broad-based vaccination programs. However, cases of communicable diseases continue to be a threat, and the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices recommends vaccination programs as a preventive health measure. Please discuss your child’s individual vaccinations needs with his or her health care provider.

Immunizations

Protection against infectious diseases

For children, adolescents, and adults alike, immunizations are the best way to protect against infectious diseases. Thanks to vaccines, many infectious diseases that were once common in this country are now under control.

Holding off on immunizations because you’re worried about side effects? Don’t — in most cases, vaccines cause no side effects or only mild reactions such as fever or soreness at the injection site. Very rarely, people experience more serious side effects, like allergic reactions. And severe reactions to vaccines occur so rarely that the risk is usually difficult to calculate. Public health officials do not release vaccines unless the preventive benefits of the vaccine far outweigh any potential risks.

Immunization schedules

Keep track of which immunizations you and your family members should receive and when:

Seasonal flu coverage and benefits

With an AmeriHealth HMO or DPOS plan, you can go to any in-network provider for a seasonal flu vaccine. That includes:

  • Participating MinuteClinics® at CVS pharmacies, RediClinics®, and at Walgreens, CVS, Rite Aid, Target Pharmacy, Kmart Pharmacy, New Albertsons (ACME SAVON), Ahold USA (Giant Pharmacy), Professional Pharmacy of Pennsburg, Shop Rite, Whitman Pharmacy, Wegmans Pharmacy, Aston Pharmacy, Life Tree Pharmacy, Walmart, Erics Pharmacy, and Philadelphia Pharmacy¹ in accordance with your standard benefits plan¹;
  • Vaccination clinics (organized by local health departments) and other private settings (e.g., place of employment).

Use the Find a Doctor tool and type in “flu” to search for a location or provider offering vaccinations near you.

If you do not know whether your plan covers immunizations, call Customer Service at the number on the back of your ID card.

Vaccine reimbursement

You do not need to pay an up-front fee when you get your flu vaccine at a participating location or wellness event, such as those offered by employers for their employees when facilitated by Maxim Healthcare Services, CVS, or Rite Aid. If you get your flu vaccine at a location other than those listed above, you may have to pay an up-front fee. AmeriHealth members who receive their vaccine at a non-participating provider may file a reimbursement form to receive reimbursement for their out-of-pocket amount of up to $50 per member, per vaccine.
