Flu shots

Flu shots

Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance)

 covers one flu shot per flu season.

Your costs in Original Medicare

You pay nothing for a flu shot if your doctor or other qualified health care provider accepts 


 for giving the shot.


Your doctor or other health care provider may recommend you get services more often than Medicare covers. Or, they may recommend services that Medicare doesn’t cover. If this happens, you may have to pay some or all of the costs. Ask questions so you understand why your doctor is recommending certain services and whether Medicare will pay for them.
