August 2016 CMS National Training Program Update

National Training Program

Older Adults Need Vaccines Too

doctor and patient
August is National Immunization Awareness Month. Adults of all ages are encouraged to talk to their doctors about which vaccines they may need toprotect their health and prevent the spread of disease. Certain vaccines are recommended based on a person’s age, occupation or health conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD), diabetes or heart disease. For more information, visitcdc.gov/vaccines/adults/rec-vac/index.html.
Medicare Part B pays for the Influenza (flu), Pneumococcal, and Hepatitis B (for persons at increased risk) vaccines. It also pays for vaccines that are directly related to the treatment of an injury or direct exposure to a disease or condition, such as rabies and tetanus. Medicare Part D pays for vaccines, like the shingles vaccine, unless they are covered by Part B. To learn more about vaccine coverage through Medicare, visit medicare.gov/coverage/shots.html.
