2020 Pacific Health
Coalition Health Fairs

Your safety comes first!
Due to COVID-19 public health concerns, the 2020 Pacific Health Coalition Health Fairs are canceled.

Our member’s health and safety is our top priority. Out of concern for the safety and well-being of the AlaskaCare members, event staff, volunteers, and the community, the 2020 health fair events have been cancelled. AlaskaCare typically partners with the Pacific Health Coalition in the fall to hold health fairs for AlaskaCare members. Due to the COVID-19 public health emergency, the health fairs will not be held in 2020. We look forward to offering health fairs next year as things return to normal.

Employee Plan Members: For those of you that were planning to participate in the 2020 health fair events, remember that the vaccines and preventive screenings offered at the health fairs are covered benefits through your AlaskaCare employee health plan coverage. Contact your regular health care provider or visit your local pharmacy to ask about what vaccines or screenings you may need this year.

Retiree Plan Members: Remember that during the COVID-19 public health emergency, the AlaskaCare Retiree plans are temporarily covering the Trivalent and Quadrivalent flu vaccines, along with the pneumococcal (pneumonia) vaccine. During the COVID-19 public health disaster emergency:

  • If you get your flu or pneumonia vaccine at a network pharmacy, AlaskaCare will cover 100% of the cost. Call OptumRx at (855) 409-6999 if you need help locating a network pharmacy.
  • If you get your flu or pneumonia vaccine at an out-of-network pharmacy, you will need to pay for the vaccine up front and submit a claim to OptumRx to be reimbursed for the cost, up to the recognized charge.
  • If you get your flu or pneumonia vaccine at your doctor’s office, the standard deductible and coinsurance will apply.
