Seven Medicare Mistakes to Avoid- Mistake # 6 - Assuming that all Preventive Care is Automaticlly Covered at 100% by Allen Heffler

Assuming that all Preventive Care is Automaticlly Covered at 100%
There are many preventive care services that Medicare covers at 100%, without any deductible or copays out of your pocket. Such servives as screenings cancer, heart disease, diabetes very well might be covered at 100%. However, it would be a mistake to automatically assume that every preventive serice is indeed covered at 100%.
Medicare is very strict as to exactly what is covered and not covered. For example, your doctor might want to provide you with extensive testing that goes far beyond what Medicare considers normal Preventive Testing. If that were the case, Medicare would probably deny those claims. Your Primary Care Physician should know the correct billing codes for what Medicare covers, and those tests should be covered under Medicare's Preventive Services. Anything beyond what is normal, well, you might have to write a check for those tests. If you see a doctor or facility other than your Primary doctor, find out ahead of time how exactly that procedure will be covered by Medicare and what, if any, you might be responsible for. While mistakes do happen, it is important to try to avoid them! Since even the most prepared person might encounter issues, it’s in your best interest to work with an independent Medicare broker who knows what they are doing when it comes to Medicare. We are here to help you every step of the way! Wouldn’t it be nice to have someone on your side with Medicare? Just call Allen Heffler – MyMedicareAdvisor at (215) 658-1776.
