Zostavax shingles vaccination
Amount: $0.00
Posted by: KP Member in San Dimas, CA.Posted: September 14th, 2015 03:09PM
Kaiser Permanente Southern California.
I'm 63, and I saw my primary care physician but forgot to ask about this shot. I sent her an email and almost immediately the nurse called me to set up an appointment. I got the shot, had a minor itchy rash for a week.

I am 54 with Ins. Blue Shield PPO of CA but they say won't cover till age 60!
Amount: $0.00
Posted by: Mrs. L. Lewis. L. in Westminster, CA.Posted: August 5th, 2015 09:08AM
Here's my dilemma. I have an auto-immune disorder already, (dx'd 20 yrs. ago) Got a full-blown shingles attack four years ago -- From my hairline, down the middle forehead into and through my right eyelid/eye. Doctor said I might lose my eye. He also said it will come back ever four years. That's, now.
I called BS of CA PPO and they confirmed no health coverage till age 60, period. Whether or not my Rheumy gives it to me or a drugstore.
I also saw a coupon on line for Zostavax.
Should I just print out the coupon and walk into a drugstore for this and hope for the best? I have NO money right now and really don't want this thing to return.
What are your suggestions?
I would love to keep the costs at under $100 if possible.

shingles shot
Amount: $116.00
Posted by: Roz Davis in Indio, CA.Posted: June 27th, 2015 01:06PM
My husband and I both got a shot. We have Humana insurance and we had a $116 co-pay.
Painless injection, no ache, no sore. After seeing 2 live cases of shingles we think that even the hope of a lighter outbreak is worth the cost of the shot.
Went to CVS, no script needed.

Shingles Shot
Amount: $200.00
Posted by: Libya77 in Atlanta, GA.Posted: May 18th, 2015 03:05PM
My doctor recommended it and said I'd need a booster next year. Fortunately my insurance paid for it. The shot did not hurt, but the next day and for the following two weeks I could not lift my arm or move my shoulder. Suffered swelling and redness, and itching where injected. This is all a scam on the elderly. Avoid the shot. I know about 1,000 people over age 70 who never got the shot; have never had shingles. It's all CDC BS!

SHINGLES VACCINE
Amount: $40.00
Posted by: Sick of the Scams in Scottsdale, AZ.Posted: May 13th, 2015 02:05PM
This sounds like many people are being scammed that have PART-D coverage. I have cigna they said it was a $40 co-pay. I am being co-payed to death by these people. It appears that I have it better than most, but they still find a way to screw me and bilk us out of our tax dollars. I looked at a recent 'bill' or statement and it shows the amount 'provider' bills to the 'plan', with provider and plan both being the same entity, cigna anyway on one service they stated that there was no co-pay or co-insurance payment, when in reality there was a $150 co-pay that I was charged before they would do the labs. I think it is time to start writing our congressmen when these insurance companies refuse to pay for these items that are most certainly covered. BTW, MEDICARE COVERS the shingles vaccine @ 55, so pretty much any senior on Medicare should be covered. Also I do not think it is legal to charge these 'pharmacy' and all these extras that they are charging.

Apr 2015! Humana POS didn\'t cover
Amount: $215.00
Posted by: lisa107 in New Port Richey, FL.Posted: April 30th, 2015 07:04AM
Cost at Sam's Club was 215, my Dr. insisted I have it as I've had to endure recurring shingles w post-herpetic neuralgia - severe leg pain on both sides.
The Sam's Club pharmacist was awesome.
I'm hoping this brings some relief...If so, worth the money!

Shingles Vaccination
Amount: $0.00
Posted by: AnnaT in Decatur, IL.Posted: April 14th, 2015 12:04PM
Humana Medicare Part D Insurance thru Walmart. Cost $210 with insurance. Refuse to pay that for one injection. This is a preventative medication most effective for seniors. Once again, the drug companies and /or insurance are taking advantage of seniors. Medicare.gov says part D should cover. Well hmph not in my case and I am 67. And this is 2015, not 2014.

shingles vaccine
Amount: $0.00
Posted by: gll in peoria, IL.Posted: April 1st, 2015 09:04PM
Dr said group he's with doesn't offer shot as so expensive. If insurances normally cover then seems they'd give it. Called Walgreens & was told would be $300. Asked if covered by ins & was told NO.I have Medicare & state medical for Secondary ins. Did't know Medicare Part D, which is medication coverage, ever covered vaccines. Medicare Part B, outpatient care ex. Dr visits, pays for my influenza vaccine. Think WAY too expensive & ads seem to use scare tactics. Looks like no one seems to agree if medicare covers or what part of medicare

I get a WHOPPING shock to see it isn't covered and I must pay the full amount! I am documenting and sending appeal w/med records!
