It depends if it is authorized by the health plan and there is a protocol for the action. For instance Cigna reimburses flu shots and Shingle shots without a prescription at CVS Minute Clinics (supervised by a Nurse Practitioner). The last time I got a flu shot it was MUCH easier and faster there than in the doctor's office.The fact that a health plan reimburses for the expense does not make it a deductible expense for income tax purposes. Many Section 125 reimbursement plans cover OTC medications.Without doing further research, I would assume that any vaccine (such as flu/pneumonia/shingles which is available without prescription would not be deductible.Ira
