Flu Shots Are Important, Especially Now
Flu and COVID-19 are both expected to spread this fall and winter, so encourage employees to get the flu vaccine now. This will protect against flu and reduce the burden on the healthcare system. It will also mean higher productivity for your business. QualChoice members can get the vaccine at no out-of-pocket cost from any in-network doctor or at a pharmacy. Members can learn more and find a vaccine provider here.
QCARE Featured Program: CARES Cancer Awareness
Our QCARE health and wellness programs offer tools to help members stay healthy or manage a chronic illness. This means improved health and lower healthcare costs. CARES, our Cancer Awareness Resources and Support program, helps members understand their condition and take an active role in managing their treatment.

For Employees Approaching Medicare Age
If you have employees approaching retirement, don't forget that QualChoice offers MediQ65® Medicare Supplement Insurance. The Silver&Fit Exercise and Healthy Aging Program is included, and for 2021 is adding daily online workouts via Facebook Live and YouTube.
