Does My Plan Cover Preventive Care?

Preventive services can be so important in helping you stay healthy that Medicare pays for many of them. Preventive care can find health problems early, when treatment works best. It can even keep you from getting certain diseases.  
 
Preventive care includes exams, shots, lab tests and screenings. It also includes programs for monitoring your health, and for counseling and education so you can take care of your own health.
 
CHOICE urges you to see your doctor and get any tests or screenings the doctor recommends.
 
All five VNSNY CHOICE Medicare Advantage plans offer the following Medicare-covered preventive services to help you stay healthy:
  • Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm Screening
  • Bone Mass Measurement
  • Cardiovascular Screenings
  • Cervical and Vaginal Cancer Screening (Pap Test and Pelvic Exam)
  • Colon Cancer Screening (Colorectal)
