Shingles Vaccine

TRICARE COVERS THE SHINGLES VACCINE, ZOSTAVAX, AS RECOMMENDED BY THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE CONTROL AND PREVENTION (CDC). ZOSTAVAX IS RECOMMENDED FOR BENEFICIARIES 60 AND OLDER. TO LEARN MORE ABOUT SHINGLES AND THE VACCINE, PLEASE VISIT THE CDC WEBSITE AT HTTP://WWW.CDC.GOV/VACCINES/VPD-VAC/SHINGLES/DEFAULT.HTM.

YOU MAY RECEIVE THE SHINGLES VACCINE AT NO COST FROM YOUR DOCTOR’S OFFICE OR AT A PARTICIPATING TRICARE RETAIL NETWORK PHARMACY. TO FIND A PHARMACY THAT PARTICIPATES IN THE VACCINE PROGRAM, SEARCH FOR A PARTICIPATING PHARMACY ONLINE AT HTTP://WWW.EXPRESS-SCRIPTS.COM/TRICARE/PHARMACY/  OR CALL 1-877-363-1303.

BEFORE GETTING THE VACCINE AT A PHARMACY, YOU SHOULD CALL THE PHARMACY FIRST TO:

• VERIFY THE DAYS AND TIMES YOU CAN COME IN FOR A VACCINE.

• SEE IF THERE ARE ANY RESTRICTIONS.

• MAKE SURE THE PHARMACY HAS THE VACCINE YOU NEED AS SOME, SUCH AS SHINGLES, MAY BE IN SHORT SUPPLY.

• MAKE SURE A PHARMACIST GIVES THE VACCINES AND NOT A PROVIDER FROM AN IN-PHARMACY CLINIC TO AVOID POTENTIAL COST SHARES OR COPAYMENTS.

NOTE: IF YOU GET THE VACCINE FROM YOUR PROVIDER, YOU MAY HAVE TO PAY COPAYMENTS OR COST SHARES FOR THE OFFICE VISIT OR OTHER SERVICES RECEIVED DURING THE OFFICE VISIT.

A NOTE FOR TRICARE FOR LIFE BENEFICIARIES

=========================================

IF YOU GET THE SHINGLES VACCINE FROM YOUR PROVIDER, ITS COVERED UNDER THE TRICARE MEDICAL BENEFIT AS A PREVENTIVE SERVICE. BECAUSE THE COST SHARING WAIVER FOR PREVENTIVE SERVICES DOES NOT APPLY WHEN USING TRICARE FOR LIFE (TFL), YOU WILL BE RESPONSIBLE TO PAY THE TRICARE COST SHARE AFTER YOU’VE MET YOUR ANNUAL DEDUCTIBLE.
