Insulin & vaccine benefits on Humana’s Medicare Advantage plans are getting even better in 2023
At Humana, we strive to help our members achieve total health so that they may live their best lives. This includes efforts to provide our members with access to more affordable prescription drugs.
With the passing of a new law, known as the Inflation Reduction Act, all Medicare Advantage plans with prescription drug coverage will have enhanced benefits beginning 1/1/2023.
Because of the recency of the legislation, these enhanced benefits may not be described in plan documents or website information.
$0 for shingles and other vaccines
All Medicare Advantage plans with prescription drug coverage will cover most Part D vaccines* at no cost to you. This includes the shingles vaccine. This coverage applies regardless of the vaccine’s drug tier and even if your plan has a deductible and you haven't paid it. If it is covered on your plan’s Part D drug list (Humana Prescription Drug Guide), then it is $0.
If your Medicare Advantage plan includes medical coverage (Medicare Part B), common vaccines such as COVID-19, flu and pneumonia will continue to be covered at no cost to you through your Part B medical benefit.
This page will be updated as additional details become available.
*Applies to Humana covered Part D vaccines listed on the Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices (ACIP) list. Restrictions based on age and vaccine availability may apply. For more information regarding the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s ACIP vaccine recommendations, please go to
