Did you get your flu shot this year?

Did you get your flu shot this year?

Aetna Better Health® of Illinois wants our members to stay healthy all year long. That’s why we’ve been urging our members to get their yearly flu shot. Getting the flu shot is more important than ever this flu season. We want to make it easy for you to get your flu shot by partnering with providers and community organizations on their flu shot efforts too.  So protect yourself and your loved ones by getting a flu shot.

When you get your flu shot, you’ll get a Flu Care Package with tips for staying healthy. And you can get a $10 reward on your Aetna Better Care rewards card.

E-learning support

Aetna Better Health of Illinois understands that COVID-19 has caused a lot of problems for our members. Working and learning at home can be hard, so we’ve introduced the Virtual Backpack. Members who qualify can get a backpack filled with educational supplies, promotional items and tutoring vouchers to help with remote learning. We’ve partnered with a local nonprofit organization, After the Peanut, to provide four hours of virtual tutoring for eligible members, grades K–12. 

Added benefits for our members

COVID-19 food deliveries


Nothing is more important to us than the health and welfare of our members. Our food delivery program gives meals to our members — right to their doorstep — who have been affected by COVID-19 or live in food deserts. We’ve partnered with T. Castro Produce, a family-owned company, and launched this program over the summer. We have already provided over 6,000 meals to families who have been negatively impacted by COVID-19. We heard the call for more help, so in November, we started to provide food packages to members across the entire state.
