Are the shingles vaccine and shingles treatment covered by Medicare?

Medicare Part A and Medicare Part B do not cover the shingles vaccine. Generally, Medicare Part D prescription drug plans cover all commercially available vaccines (like the shingles vaccines) needed to prevent illness. Please check your Medicare Advantage or Part D Summary of Benefits or call your insurance company to ensure the shingles vaccine is covered or if any qualifications must be met to receive it.

Medicare Part B would cover visits to a doctor’s office or urgent care center. It also covers any injections you receive at the doctor’s office.

If you are enrolled in a Medicare Supplement or Medicare Advantage, your deductible, copay, or coinsurance may be different or less depending on the plan you have chosen.
