Medicare: Do You Know All You Should?

Medical or Diagnostic Tests Under Part B

Even if your physician is not an approved Medicare provider, certain tests which he/she may prescribe are still covered by Medicare. Naturally, the testing center or facility must be a Medicare-approved provider and must agree to accept charges on assignment from Medicare, under a process similar to that set forth in the above section. With the exception of certain state limitations, Medicare will generally pay 100% of these approved diagnostic tests, so long as they are prescribed.

Once again, by asking the physician ahead of time, you can determine which tests he/she will be scheduling and make certain that even if the physician is not approved, that he/she prescribes to a testing or diagnostic center which is approved, and make certain that the tests prescribed are covered under Medicare schedules.
