BCBSNC members must present a valid BCBSNC ID card and a photo ID to receive a flu shot.Maxim will file claims electronically to BCBSNC for processing

As a reminder, Maxim Health Systems will only be offering the Quadrivalent vaccine this year.  In the past, we offered the Trivalent vaccine.  The Quadrivalent vaccine offers broader protection, as it covers 4 strains of the influenza virus, two A strains and two B strains, while Trivalent only covers two A strains and one B strain.

The Quadrivalent vaccine is specifically for ages 18+. ALL Blue Cross NC events will be 18+ for 2017.

There is a price increase associated with this change to Quadrivalent.

– The price for Blue Cross NC members is now $33.

– Blue Cross NC members won’t need to pay out of pocket as long as they bring their Blue Cross member ID Card.

– The price per shot for non-insured participants is now $35. Participants without Blue Cross NC insurance, or a Maxim accepted insurance,  will be required to pay $35 for the flu shot.

– If the client has chosen to pay for non-covered participants, then the client will be responsible for the $35 payment.
