FAQ for Drivers Benefits’ Free Flu Shot Voucher Program:
Q: Do I need insurance to use my free flu shot voucher?
A: No. If you don’t have insurance, the voucher will cover the cost of the flu shot. If you need health insurance, call Drivers Benefits at 800-218-1491 to see if you and your family qualify for free or low-cost coverage.
Q: I heard that if I’m over 65 I need a different kind of flu shot. Is that covered?
A: That’s true for many people over 65 and yes, that flu shot is still covered by the free flu shot voucher. The pharmacist you see will decide which flu shot is best for you.
Q:What is Drivers Benefits? Do my passengers really pay for all this?
A: Drivers Benefits is a program that provides eligible Black Car and Rideshare drivers with health and wellness benefits. Your passengers pay into The Black Car Fund every time they ride with you, and that money is used for these benefits. Click here to learn more.
