Medicare Information

Part B covers Pap tests and pelvic exams to check for cervical and vaginal cancers. As part of the pelvic exam, Medicare also covers a clinical breast exam to check for breast cancer.

These screenings include blood tests that help detect conditions that may lead to a heart attack or stroke.

Medicare will cover one visit per year with a primary care doctor in a primary care setting (like a doctor’s office) to help lower your risk for cardiovascular disease.

Medicare covers comprehensive programs that include exercise, education, and counseling for patients who meet at least one of these conditions:

Medicare covers screening mammograms to check for breast cancer once every 12 months for all women with Medicare who are 40 and older.

This test helps to see if you’re at risk for broken bones. It’s covered once every 24 months (more often if medically necessary ) for people who have certain medical conditions or meet certain criteria.

If the provider gets blood from a blood bank at no charge, you won’t have to pay for it or replace it. However, you’ll pay a copayment for the blood processing and handling services for each unit of blood you get, and the Part B deductible applies.

Medicare covers the facility service fees related to approved surgical procedures provided in an ambulatory surgical center (facility where surgical procedures are performed, and the patient is expected to be released within 24 hours).
