Adding coverage for the shingles vaccine

The shingles vaccine is currently not a covered benefit. We are considering adding this vaccine to the benefits plan. 

It is estimated that 1 in 3 adults over age 60 will get shingles, which can be a painful and debilitating condition. We have heard from members a desire to have the shingles vaccine included in the post-retirement group benefits program. Currently, the plan does not include coverage for any non-publicly funded vaccines. There would be a cost to the plan and potential increased premiums to add this benefit.
