Flu Shot Information

Due to the increased availability of Flu shots, GGUSD will not be hosting a Flu Shot Clinic during 2018.  

PPO and EPO Members may obtain the flu shot at any local provider. 

Pharmacies will expect payment at the time the shot is administered.  Simply submit the detailed receipt to the *GGUSD Insurance Office.  (Be sure to ID the employee.)  We will forward it to EBA&M for processing and you will receive an Explanation of Benefits along with a refund check in the mail at home. 

*GGUSD Employee Insurance, 10331 Stanford Ave., Garden Grove, CA  92840

Since flu shots are mandated by the Affordable Care Act to be covered at 100%, no reimbursement is necessary when administered in your doctor’s office.
