Section: Part B Helps Cover ...
is an alphabetical list of common items and services Medicare covers if they are either:
- Medically Necessary--This means the item or service is needed for the diagnosis or treatment of your medical condition,
- Medicare-covered Preventive Services--like exams, lab tests, and screening shots to help prevent, find, or manage a medical problem. Preventive services may find health problems early when treatment works best. Talk to your doctor about which preventive services you need and if you meet the criteria for coverage.
You can live a healthy lifestyle by exercising, eating well, keeping a healthy weight, not smoking, and using preventive services.
