Note: Flu shots are covered by SHIP; however, note that how pharmacies code the billing of the flu shot may vary, sometimes they are coded as prescription benefits and sometimes as medical benefits for processing. If you are told that your student insurance does not cover the flu shot by a particular location, please call the customer service line on the back of your student insurance card so that UHCSR can assist that pharmacy with proper verification/billing.
