Medicare Preventive Services – 2019

Medicare Preventive Services

Preventive care is care you receive to prevent illness, detect medical conditions, and keep you healthy. Medicare Part B covers many preventive services, such as screenings, vaccines, and counseling. You may use these services, if you meet the eligibility requirements. This is true for Original Medicare and Medicare Advantage Plans.

Medicare Preventive Services are now covered more than ever. As the new services are added, Medicare coverage of preventive services may change at any time. The table of Medicare preventive services is shown below. Some of the services are free, meaning that neither copays nor deductibles are required. (Cells of those services are empty). Other services require either a copay or both copay and deductible.
