I have no idea. There is no copay for vaccines with Kaiser Senior Advantage.Is it your Part B plan or your Part D plan that it is billed to??
I have no idea. There is no copay for vaccines with Kaiser Senior Advantage.
ETA: Now that I think about it, it would have been billed to Part B. Part D is for prescription meds. I don't understand why you would have been "quoted" a price. Check your policy. If you can't find the answer there, call your insurer and ask what your copay would be.
Are you talking about a shingles shot? If so, hubby and I got ours about 2 years ago at a local pharmacy (because our "doctor" at the time, didn't give shots in his office...not even the flu vaccine) and our insurance didn't cover one penny. We paid almost $600 for our shots and then several months later, I found out they were the "old" shingles vaccine and were only 30% effective.
Oh no, sorry to hear that. I guess the Shingrix was approved by FDA in 2017. I have postponed this a long time,
I didn't get it in past decades, either, due to the old one having been a live vaccine.I remember my insurance used to cover it years ago, now they don't. I didn't get it though because at the time, I wasn't impressed with the efficacy and didn't know what was in it. I felt that boosting my immune system was a better option. I sure hope it works for me because my niece is among those I know who suffered with shingles and none would wish it on their worst enemy.
Past decades? The first shingles vaccine was only licensed in 2006, fifteen years ago.
