Looks like it.....
Though Medicare typically pays for one vaccination per year, if more than one vaccination per year is medically necessary (i.e. the number of doses of a vaccine and/or type of influenza vaccine), then Medicare will pay for those additional vaccinations. Our Medicare claims processing contractors have been notified to expect and prepare for earlier-than-usual seasonal flu claims and there should not be a problem in getting those claims paid. Furthermore, in the event that it is necessary for Medicare beneficiaries to receive both a seasonal flu vaccination and an influenza A [H1N1] vaccination, then Medicare will pay for both. However, as noted earlier, please be advised that if either vaccine is provided free of charge to the health care provider, then Medicare will only pay for the vaccineâ€™s administration (not for the vaccine itself).
