Health Net of Oregon Reminds Adults: Vaccines Aren’t Just for Kids

DRUCKEN

Health Net Health Plan of Oregon reminds adults that vaccinations are important preventive health measures not only for children, but also for themselves.

"Many people mistakenly believe that vaccinations are just for children,” said Camille Cadran, Health Net wellness educator. "While there is no debating the importance of childhood vaccinations, adults should consult their doctors about vaccines to protect them from the flu, pneumonia, tetanus and diphtheria, hepatitis A, hepatitis B and several other illnesses.”

With the approach of flu season, Health Net urges adults ages 50 and above to follow the recommendation of the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) and get a flu vaccine every year. Younger adults should consult their doctors.

New this year is the ACIP recommendation that children 5 to 18 years old get a flu vaccine.

Vaccinations are important, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, because they prevent infectious disease and protect those who come into contact with unvaccinated individuals. Plus, vaccine-preventable diseases can result in doctor visits, hospitalizations – even premature death.

"Another good health investment for adults ages 60 and above is the zoster vaccine, which can protect against shingles,” said Cadran. "People should talk to their doctors about whether it’s right for them and can help them avoid what can be serious illness.”

Health Net commercial and Medicare Advantage members seeking information on vaccines – or on any health topic – may contact Health Net’s Decision Power program, which provides 24/7 access to health coaches who can provide information to help them have in-depth conversations with their physicians and make better-informed decisions about their health. Health Net members may call Decision Power at 1-800-893-5597.

For individuals covered by Medicare plans, including Medicare Advantage plans offered by private health insurers, vaccines – including the flu vaccine – have $0 co-payments. To determine your plan’s co-payments, check your Evidence of Coverage (EOC) or call your health plan.

Free Vaccines

To make it easy for Health Net members to get their flu vaccines, Health Net is providing free vaccines to Medicare Advantage members in several Oregon counties and in Clark County, Wash. Health Net will cover the cost of flu shots for Health Net Medicare Advantage members at their doctor’s office or at participating Costco, Safeway and Albertsons/Sav-On stores. Health Net also will reimburse Health Net Medicare Advantage members when they get a flu shot at alternate locations, such as senior centers and health clinics.
