    Is anyone else having trouble getting Medicare to cover TWINRIX?

    Lisa,

    Do you know if there is a specific reason why Medicare will cover the Hep B vaccine but not the Twinrix? Patient is HIV+ and high risk. Not sure if there is any way around this and I am having difficulty finding the information I need.

    Thanks for your help!
    Susan
