Medicare will pay about $75 per dose to administer COVID-19 vaccines in a Medicare beneficiary’s home, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services announced today. That’s up from about $40 per dose currently for at-home vaccination.

“CMS is committed to meeting the unique needs of Medicare consumers and their communities – particularly those who are home bound or who have trouble getting to a vaccination site,” said CMS Administrator Chiquita Brooks-Lasure. “That’s why we’re acting today to expand the availability of the COVID-19 vaccine to people with Medicare at home.”
