2021 Pacific Health
Coalition Health Fairs

Your safety comes first!
Due to COVID-19 public health concerns, the 2021 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 2021 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 uncertainty around COVID-19 the health fairs will not be held in 2021.

Employee Plan Members: For those of you that were planning to participate in the 2021 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: For those of you that receive an annual flu shot at the health fair events, 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 through December 31, 2021.

  • 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.
