Many people don’t know they have osteoporosis until they break a bone. Did you know Medicare can help you prevent or detect osteoporosis at an early stage, when treatment works best?
Talk to your doctor about getting a bone mass measurement (bone density). If you’re at risk, Medicare Part B covers this test once every 24 months (more often if medically necessary) at no cost to you, when your doctor or other qualified provider orders it.
You can take steps to make your bones stronger and healthier, no matter your age.Talk to your doctor, and visit Medicare.gov to find out how Medicare can help protect your bones.
