What to Bring When Attending an On-Campus Flu Shot Clinic

If you attend an on-campus flu shot clinic, you will need to bring your University ID card, as well as, your UPMC Health Plan insurance card. Individuals who participate in the Panther Advocate plan can receive $25 in HIA credits for obtaining a flu shot.

If you do not carry the University's medical insurance plan, you can still obtain a flu shot on campus for a $30 out-of-pocket charge. The cost of the High Dose flu shot for individuals over the age of 65 is $55.

Can't Make it to an On-Campus Flu Shot Clinic?

UPMC Health Plan members may obtain a flu shot from a participating provider at no out-of-pocket cost. Members also may obtain a flu shot with no out-of-pocket cost at CVS, Giant Eagle or Rite Aid pharmacies. Simply present your UPMC Health Plan member ID card at the time you receive your flu shot and you will not have to submit a receipt or any other additional paperwork to UPMC Health Plan.

If you obtain a flu shot at a clinic or pharmacy that does not participate with UPMC Health Plan, then you will need to pay for the flu shot at the time of service and file a claim for reimbursement. Reimbursement forms can be downloaded from UPMC Health Plan at www.upmchealthplan.com, under "Commonly Used Forms ' at the bottom of the page.
