COVID-19 Vaccine Policies & Guidance

We’re giving you the information you need to be ready for the COVID-19 vaccine when it’s available. If we can prepare a wide pool of providers to administer the COVID-19 vaccine, then we can ensure the vaccine is covered and available free of charge for every American.

COVID-19 vaccine information for you


This is your centralized resource where you’ll find specific information for providers, health plans, state Medicaid programs, and Children’s Health Insurance Programs.  We’ll regularly update our resources as more information’s available.  

We're just part of the solution.  See the CDC's COVID vaccine resources and outreach materials.


It’s clear Congress wants to make sure Medicare beneficiaries have this vaccine and that there isn’t any cost sharing.

We want to make sure that as the FDA is getting approvals for new medications, we are paying for these innovative treatments appropriately. We’re working across the entire agency — not just Medicare but Medicaid and even private insurers — to ensure there are no barriers to individuals getting vaccines.”
