Paying for Preventive Services such as Mammograms

on Thu, 03/29/2012 - 8:00am

Thanks to the Affordable Care Act, many preventative services, including mammograms, are now available to patients at no additional cost.

As of January 1, 2011, a number of preventative services are covered at no cost to you under Medicare, if they are administered by a doctor or other health care provider.  Covered services include  mammograms, annual wellness visits, tobacco cessation counseling,  vaccinations, cholesterol chekcs, and certain cancer screenings.
