Benefit Updates

  • If you are enrolled in either of the State Health Plans PEBA offers many Health and Wellness Programs that you may be interested in for you or your covered family members.  Visit “PEBA” for information related to Health and Wellness Plans through PEBA.
  • Flu and Shingles Vaccines offered for members of the State Health Plans - Flu vaccinations are offered at no charge to all State Health Plan members. This applies to both the Standard and Savings Health Plans. Members may get the shot from a participating pharmacy for a $0 copayment. If a member receives the shot in a network doctor’s office, the flu vaccine and the administration fee will be paid in full. Please note that any associated doctor’s office visit charge will be processed according to regular plan coverage rules.

    The shingles vaccine, Zostavax, and the administration fee for giving the shot, are free to State Health Plan members age 60 and older if received from a participating pharmacy. This applies to both the Standard and Savings Health Plans. The vaccination does require a valid prescription from a doctor. To save the cost of an extra office visit, you may want to get the prescription from your doctor at a regular scheduled visit. Please note that not all participating pharmacies administer the vaccine. If the vaccination is not given at a participating pharmacy, Zostavax needs to be kept frozen and taken immediately to a doctor’s office for administration. Please note that any associated doctor’s office visit charges will be processed according to regular plan coverage rules.

    To find a participating pharmacy, please call Express Scripts at 1-855-612-3128 or visit www.Express-Scripts.com. You will need to register on the website to gain access to the participating pharmacy listing. If you have any additional questions, please contact PEBA at 1-888-260-9430.
