Does Railroad Medicare cover TDAP shots?

No. Railroad Medicare does not cover TDAP CPT code 90715, even though it includes the tetanus component, due to the additional preventive component of the acellular pertussis vaccine for whooping cough.

Medicare Part D plans generally cover all commercially available vaccines as long as the vaccine is reasonable and necessary to prevent illness. Contact the patient’s Medicare Part D plan to verify their coverage of the TDAP vaccine.
