Flu Shot Online Registration
Frequently Asked Questions
- Do I have to use the online registration system to get my flu shot?
We encourage you to use this method. The online registration is easy and reduces the wait time to receive the immunization. It also ensures an adequate supply of the vaccine is available for everyone. You must print your Patient Consent Form from the online registration and bring a photo ID, preferably your UTD-ID, to receive your flu shot.
- Do I have to pay for the flu shot?
No, the cost of the flu shot is billed directly to your health insurance provider. For most employees, this will BCBS of Texas/UTSelect. If you have coverage with another health insurance provider, you will select your plan from the drop down menu. You may be asked to provide a credit card number should your plan not cover the immunization 100% due to co-pay or deductible. (BCBS of Texas UT Select participants will not need to present a credit card.) Please select the option "Patient is Covered by Insurance" when completing this section.
- The online registration requires my Group ID and Member ID number. Where do I find this information?
This information is on your health insurance card. For most UTD employees the Group ID number is 071778. The Member ID number is your Benefits ID number. If you are a new employee and have not received your health insurance card, please contact Richard Jordan, our Benefits Specialist at 972-883-2131 for assistance.
- What if I forget to print my Patient Consent Form or do not have access to a computer?
Paper Immunization Consent forms will be available at each location, however it increases your wait time. If you use a paper consent form please bring your insurance card and a photo ID, preferably your UTD ID with you to the site.
- What if I do not have health insurance, but would like to receive a flu shot?
If you do not have health insurance you may receive the flu shot at a cost of $25.00 due at the site. Mollen accepts debit/credit cards, cash and checks.
