Abdominal aortic aneurysm screening

Medicare covers a one-time screening abdominal aortic aneurysm ultrasound for people at risk. You must get a referral from your doctor or other practitioner. You pay nothing for the screening if the doctor or other qualified health care provider accepts assignment .

Note: If you have a family history of abdominal aortic aneurysms, or you’re a man 65–75 and you’ve smoked at least 100 cigarettes in your lifetime, you’re considered at risk.
