Cardiovascular disease screenings

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

Medicare covers these screening tests once every 5 years to test your cholesterol, lipid, lipoprotein, and triglyceride levels. You pay nothing for the tests if the doctor or other qualified health care provider accepts assignment.
