An exception has been made for the coverage of the shingles vaccine, such as Zostervax, for a limited period of one year. Shingles vaccines charged from January 1, 2016 to December 31, 2016 will be reimbursed based on the drug benefit provisions in the PPAO plan (subject to 80% coinsurance and the annual drug maximum). No other vaccines will be covered.
Effective January 1, 2017, coverage for shingles vaccine will be terminated.
