Does Medicare pay for Preventive Services and Procedures?

Medicare Preventative Services and ProceduresDoes Medicare pay for preventive services and procedures? Whether you are new to Medicare or have been enrolled for some time, this is one of the most common questions recipients ask. And the answer…more and more, is “Yes”.

However, the amount you pay for these services varies depending on whether you have Medicare Parts A and B or a Medicare Advantage Plan (like an HMO or PPO).

You won’t have to pay anything for many preventive services if you get them from a qualified doctor or other health care provider who accepts assignment. Sometimes though, you may have to pay a deductible, coinsurance, and/or co-payment. The costs of these may vary depending on the type of services you need and which Medicare health plan you have.

Use the checklist at Medicare.gov to determine what preventive care and screening services are covered.
