Here’s a new announcement from Medicare.gov:
We.ve got good news to share!
Thanks to the Prescription Drug Law that went into effect this year, even more vaccines are free for people with Medicare Part D – an average savings of up to $80 in out-of-pocket costs each year.
This means more people with Medicare being protected against disease and severe illness.
Examples of vaccines now covered under Medicare Part D include:
- Tetanus/Diphtheria (Td)
- Tetanus, Diphtheria and Pertussis (Tdap)
- Hepatitis A
- Hepatitis B
Flue shots, COVID-19 vaccines, and pneumococcal shots are still covered by Medicare.
Serious diseases can impact our health and quality of life. That’s why it’s so important to stay up-to-date with vaccines. Talk with your doctor about which vaccines are right for you!
