Shingles Prevention

The single best way to prevent shingles is to get your shot

How shingles shots are covered

Zostavax and Shingrix are both covered under Medicare Part D benefits at preferred brand cost share. We encourage you to get Part D vaccines at network pharmacies for cost savings and convenience (you won’t need to submit a paper claim form).

Options to get your shingles shot with our Medicare Advantage (MAPD) plans
