    Medicare will not reimburse for Zostaxax. Get a waiver signed and collect the money

    Medicare Part D is covering the Zostavax vaccine.

    ICD-9 - V05.8

    What I have learned since original post is that .. Dr writes RX, pt brings rx to office, we bill G0377 for administration only. Medicare D pays vaccine. This is on Medicare and Palmetto GBA websites. This will end on Jan 1, 2008. The vaccine and admin will be covered under part D only. Go377 will not be valid. Bill the patient and then the pt may bill part D.

    Now let me ask.. who will be adminstering these vaccines? The pharmacy? How is everyone handling this scenerio?

    Happy Thanksgiving!!!
