The flu (influenza) is a serious disease and can be dangerous, especially for young children and older adults. Flu shots are a covered benefit at no cost to you. Flu shots are the best way to stop the flu and its dangers. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that everyone 6 months and older be vaccinated every year.

Peak flu season in the U.S. is from November to March. An updated flu shot becomes available each fall. Be sure to get your shot early to help prevent the flu for the whole season. Even a late flu shot is better than no flu shot.  

Get ready for tax season: Free help is available

March 4, 2019

Tax season is here! It’s important to remember that information about your health coverage is part of the tax filing process. The IRS needs to know who had health coverage in 2018.

That's where Form 1095-B for health coverage comes in. It lets the IRS know who had coverage and for how long. You may get a Form 1095-B in the mail from the California Department of Health Care Services. Healthy Kids members enrolled through SCFHP may also get a 1095-B from SCFHP. Keep it, because you may need it when you complete your tax return.
