With the large number of baby boomers turning 65 everyday in the U.S. (approx. 10,000 people a day), and the strive for better health and longevity; we at Senior65 believe preventive health care is the most important way to ensure a long life. Which leads to the million dollar question, how does Medigap cover vaccinations? Don’t worry, we’ve got your answer.
What’s Medigap’s Vaccination Coverage?
We’ve tricked you with this question, because Medigap doesn’t pay anything for vaccinations. Don’t panic, Original Medicare picks up 100% of your Flu, Hepatitis B, and Pneumococcal shots. And, if you want other vaccines, you might be surprised that many of the other shots are not covered by Part B, but rather by Part D (your drug plan). Learn more about your Medicare scheduled vaccinations.
Part D’s Vaccination Coverage
Your Part D plan will pay toward vaccinations such as tDap and Shingles shots. Each plan will cover these costs differently. Learn more about your Part D coverage here or give us a call with questions. You will want to revisit your Part D coverage with us each year during the Medicare Annual Election Period to make sure you have the right plan for you.
