If you are enrolled in a Part D plan either as an addition to Original Medicare A and B, or as part of a Medicare Advantage/Health plan (like an HMO, PPO or PFFS plan), you will need to call the customer service number on the back of your prescription drug card to find out what your co-payment for the vaccine will be.
