Capital BlueCross to Cover Administration Costs of H1N1 Vaccine for Fully-Insured Groups, Individuals This Flu Season
Date:9/16/2009

HARRISBURG, Pa., Sept. 16 /PRNewswire/ -- Capital BlueCross announced today that it will cover an administration fee for the H1N1 Flu vaccine for fully-insured members and those with individual coverage during the upcoming 2009-2010 flu season. Self-funded groups may opt to have their coverage customized to include this benefit.

A vaccine is expected to be available to the public in October. Various clinical vaccine trials have begun, some under the direction of the National Institutes of Health and others by manufacturers under contract with Health and Human Services.

The H1N1 vaccine itself will be provided at no cost by the federal government. Capital BlueCross is focusing on paying the administration fee to help encourage members to seek vaccination for H1N1 for what is expected to be a very active flu season.

Capital BlueCross advises that the H1N1 vaccine is in addition to the seasonal flu vaccine, which is still important to have each year.

"With the threat of a possible local outbreak, it is even more important this year for you to get a regular flu shot in addition to H1N1 protection," said Dr. Christopher Rumpf, Capital BlueCross senior medical director. "Unfortunately, many people skip the annual seasonal flu vaccine and might be inclined to do the same for the H1N1 vaccine. Often this occurs because people reason that they are young or healthy and therefore they could easily handle a bad case of the flu. This same logic could be very harmful if applied to the H1N1 virus."

Rumpf notes Capital BlueCross highly recommends that people exercise the following tips provided by the Centers for Disease Control to help prevent the spread of any flu:

  • Wash your hands often with soap and water or alcohol-based hand cleaners (especially after you cough or sneeze).
  • Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or
