What is covered under Medicare?

Medicare coverage for many tests, items and services depends on where you live. This list only includes tests, items and services that are covered no matter where you live. If your test, item or service isn’t listed, talk to your doctor or other health care provider. They can help you understand why you need certain tests, items or services, and if Medicare will cover them.  Keep I mind that even if Medicare covers a service or item, you generally have to pay your  deductiblecoinsurance, and copayment.
