Paying for Preventive Services such as Mammograms
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.
