Take Your Flu Shot—Most Crucial This Year Than Ever

It is more critical this year than ever to have your flu shot. Make sure you and your loved ones take precautions against the flu and take a flu shot. So, Does Medicare cover flu shots? Let’s find it out! Part B of Medicare, one of the two parts of Original Medicare, covers 100% of the cost during the fall or winter of seasonal flu shots once a year. Flu vaccines are covered entirely as long as the doctor or healthcare provider approves the Medicare assignment. Learn about Medicare flu shot coverage and how Medicare Part B covers flu vaccinations. Protect yourself and your loved ones this flu season with NewMedicare.com.

Factors to Consider

Getting your annual flu shot is something you shouldn’t put off. Protect yourself from this highly contagious virus by getting your flu shot early. Some things to remember about getting vaccinated against the flu:

  • The best time to get your flu shot is between August 1 and July 31 of the following year.
  • Getting a flu vaccination every year by the end of October is something the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends for everyone six months and older.
  • Complications from the flu are hazardous for anyone over 65.
  • The doctor may advise that their patient get two doses of the flu vaccine. Medicare covers both vaccinations.

Medicare Costs for Flu Shots

Each flu season, Medicare recipients are entitled to one free flu vaccination.

This immunization is 100% covered by Medicare Part B, with no out-of-pocket costs to the recipient.

The shot is free if you have a Medicare Advantage plan, but you may be required to have it given to you by a doctor or pharmacy that is part of your Medicare Advantage plan’s provider network.

NewMedicare Covers a Flu Shot.

Every year, flu viruses vary, so each flu season needs to get a flu shot. When it’s flu season, you do not pay for people with NewMedicare.com when you get a shot from a doctor or another health care provider (such as senior centers and pharmacies) who accepts NewMedicare.com.

You should take crucial steps to ensure you are protected this flu season, such as:

  • Washing hands
  • Close your nose and mouth when you cough or sneeze.
  • Stay at home when you feel unwell.
  • Cleaning of often-touched areas
