    Default Flu season kits?

    The other day a huge stack of identical boxes were delivered to this building, addressed to various residents here. They were all from one of the health insurance companies (I think it was HealthNet but can't recall).

    I'm pretty sure they contained flu season kits because United Health Care (my Medicare Advantage HMO) is sending me one. It will include a thermometer, some Tamiflu in case I get the flu, and a COVID-19 test.

    Has anyone received something like this? I received a notice about it and signed up to receive one. (It's free.) I'd like having a new thermometer and the other items could be useful to.

    I'm not sure what this is but the notice states that I'm also getting "immediate doctor access by phone to provide diagnosis and treatment guidance." Surely my regular doctor isn't going to have immediate access. Maybe they have some doctor always available at a certain number.

    I didn't get anything like that from United Health Care. Maybe I got something to sign up for it and threw it away without realizing what it was. They are who I have my medicare supplement with.

    I very nearly threw mine away too, Virginia. It looked like one more meaningless piece of paper from them. The phone number for questions is 833-321-0383, or you can go to WellAtHome.com.
