    I believe that Medicare Part B does NOT cover the Zostavax; however, it is covered under Medicare Part D, so if patients have a doctor's order, they can have their pharmacist give them the shot and get it reimbursed through the pharmacy under Part D, if they have a Part D plan.

    That is exactly right, Gail. Medicare part B will not pay for that vaccine, but it is covered under part D.

    it is code 90736, but it is almost impossible to get from pharmacy as it is a frozen vaccine. It is not covered under part b

    I work for a pharmacist and they give the shingles vaccine all the time. The vaccine is billed under Part D Plan.

    How do you bill Blue Care Network for the Shingles Vaccine for a 68 yr old still working patient that has full coverage under BCN and doesnt have Medicare.
