Medicare-Covered Preventive Services

Each Office Visit is an Opportunity to Recommend Influenza Vaccination

People 65 years and older are at greater risk of serious complications from seasonal influenza. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention encourages you to use each office visit as an opportunity and recommend seasonal influenza vaccination – to protect your patients, your staff, and yourself.

Medicare Part B covers one influenza vaccination and its administration each influenza season for Medicare beneficiaries. If medically necessary, Medicare may cover additional seasonal influenza vaccinations.
