2.  Print and complete the  Flu Clinic Packet to minimize your wait.

SEEKING A FLU SHOT OUTSIDE OF WVU MEDICINE

Employees who plan to obtain a flu shot at a location other than WVU Medicine are encouraged to contact the provider in advance for information regarding: hours of operation, vaccine availability, insurance coverage, etc. Not all locations accept PEIA insurance, so fees may apply. If an out-of-pocket expense occurs, PEIA-insured employees may seek reimbursement.


HOW TO SEEK REIMBURSEMENT
PEIA insured employees that make a payment at the time of service may seek reimbursement by submitting a  HealthSmart Health Benefits Claim Form
