EKG or ECG (electrocardiogram) screening

Medicare covers a one-time screening EKG/ECG if referred by your doctor or other health care provider as part of your one-time “Welcome to Medicare” preventive visit.

You pay 20% of the Medicare -approved amount , and the Part B deductible applies. An EKG/ECG is also covered as a diagnostic test. If you have the test at a hospital or a hospital -owned clinic, you also pay the hospital a copayment .
