The HPV vaccine Gardasil 9 has been approved for women up to age 45. Humana still has the age 26 limit in its policy. When will this be updated?
Humana follows the CDC recommendations for immunizations.
As of right now, the maximum age limit is 26 years of age.
Vaccination is not recommended for everyone older than age 26 years. However, some adults ages 27 through 45 years may decide to get the HPV vaccine based on discussion with their clinician, if they did not get adequately vaccinated when they were younger. HPV vaccination of people in this age range provides less benefit, as more have been already exposed to HPV.
Will Humana now cover those age 27+ individuals with doctor approval?
