Adult immunization rates in the United States remain well below Healthy People 2020 targets. The disparate coverage of vaccines under Medicare creates significant barriers to increasing adult immunization uptake. For example, cost sharing under Medicare Part D limits beneficiary access and separation of vaccine coverage across Medicare Parts B and D creates challenges for providers and beneficiaries. 

Avalere's vaccine thought leaders will be joined by Cynthia Tudor, and they will discuss:

  • Vaccine access challenges for Medicare beneficiaries
  • Potential reforms to Medicare coverage of vaccines at the legislative and regulatory levels
  • Avalere's readiness to support immunization stakeholders
