Does Humana support the new shingles and for how much?
Great Question !
The new Shingles vaccine (Shingrix) is recommended for members 50 years of age and older. Shingrix is administered as a 0.5-ml injection initially, followed by a second 0.5-ml injection two to six months later.
Humana may recommend this vaccine, however coverage is dependent on your plan's benefits and how and where the vaccine is administered.
After logging into your MyHumana.com account, go to Coverage & Benefits to learn more about your vaccine and immunization benefits.
Also, I included a link below, to the Humana Coverage Issues Document for the Shingrix immunization. This document provides you with further guidance policy information.
I went to your link (re: shingles vaccine) and it is quite nebulous as to whether or NOT Humana covers a simple required vaccine and the link is dead?! My Designated PMD through Facey Medical Group encouraged me to get the vaccination. And by all accounts Anyone who has suffered Shingles. would desire ANYTHING OTHER than this it is SO PAINFUL! I would entertain a reasonable Yes/No answer to this vital vaccine! So Mam... Where can I look on My Page? Because immuzations are not clear. It just says that "they" are covered under the Part D Rx plan. OK....What does that Mean? Again, We (Me) are NOT getting a clear understanding of our coverage?! Can you explain Mine? Thank You very much...
I do apologize that the online benefit information is not clearly stated.
I accessed your Humana policy and it appears that you have a plan which is not supported by this online forum, since this site is specific to employer group plans.
So, I contacted the Humana department which does handle your plan benefits and I was advised that the Shingles vaccine is a covered vaccine. However, there may be a pharmacy copay as your member responsibility. .
To ensure you are given the most accurate and complete information, I would suggest contacting the customer service number on the back of your ID card.
Thank you !
So if my Humana Designated PMD orders the Shingles Vaccine and then I go to a "In-Network" Pharmacy to have the vaccine adminsitered. How much will Humana cover under the Part D Medicare Rx coverage? I hope this is specific enough for anyone at Humana to provide a truly qualified answer as to the amount! Correct? Thank You
I do apologize. This online forum is specific to employer group plans and therefore detailed benefits are not available for your policy. .
Please contact the customer service number on the back of your ID card in order to obtain your immunization benefits.
