What's covered

Finding information about Medicare coverage is easier than ever now. Download the only official U.S. government Medicare app onto your mobile device.

What’s covered helps you understand the health care coverage offered by Original Medicare Part A (Hospital Insurance) and Part B (Medical Insurance).

Use this federal government app to:

-Answer your Medicare coverage questions

-See information about your costs

-Learn about covered items & services

-See notes & where to get more information

-Browse free preventive services

Original Medicare Items & Services

Find out what your Medicare coverage has to offer like:

- When are mammograms covered?

- Is home health care covered?

- Will Medicare pay for diabetes supplies?

Preventive Health Coverage

Medicare coverage includes preventive services at no cost to you. Preventive services can help keep you healthy by finding health problems early and can keep you from getting certain diseases.

What’s covered will help you answer questions like:

- Will my Medicare benefits cover services to help me stop smoking?

- Can I get a cervical cancer screening?

- How often will my Medicare coverage allow me to get a bone mass measurement?

Ask your doctor or health care provider which preventive services (like screenings, shots, and tests) you need to get.

Part A & Part B Costs

Medicare Part A and Part B cover certain medical services and supplies in hospitals, doctors’ offices, and other health care settings.

Part A hospital insurance coverage helps pay for inpatient care in a hospital, inpatient care in a skilled nursing facility, hospice care, home health care, or inpatient care in a religious nonmedical health care institution. Copayments, coinsurance, or deductibles may apply for each service.

Part B medical insurance coverage supports medically necessary doctors’ services, outpatient care, home health services, durable medical equipment, preventive services, and other medical services. Under Original Medicare, if the Part B deductible applies, you must pay all health care costs (up to the Medicare-approved amount) until you meet the yearly Part B deductible. After your deductible is met, Medicare begins to pay its share and you typically pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount of the service, if the doctor or health care provider accepts assignment. There’s no yearly limit for what you pay out-of-pocket.

For some items and services, you must meet eligibility criteria or you may be responsible for paying all costs. Your doctor or health care provider may recommend you get services more often than Medicare covers. Or, they may recommend services that Medicare doesn’t cover. If this happens, you may have to pay some or all of the costs. Ask questions so you understand why your doctor is recommending certain services and whether Medicare will pay for them.

Use the What’s covered app to answer questions like:

-How much will I pay for prescription drugs included in Medicare Part B coverage?

-Does the Part B deductible apply for cardiac rehab?

-What percentage of the Medicare-approved amount will I need to pay for colorectal cancer screenings?

What’s Not Included

What’s covered doesn’t contain information on Medicare Advantage Plan, other Medicare health plan, or Medicare Supplement Insurance (Medigap) coverage. It doesn’t contain a CPT code search, exact costs on surgeries or procedures, or local coverage decisions.

Medicare Advantage Plans

If you have a Medicare Advantage Plan or other Medicare health plan, you have the same basic health care coverage as people who have Original Medicare, but the rules vary by plan. Some Medicare Advantage Plans offer extra benefits that Original Medicare doesn’t cover - like vision, hearing, or dental. Check with the plan or search in the App or Google Play Store to see if the plan has a similar mobile application.

This is Medicare’s first official app, and we value your feedback. Please tell us your thoughts by rating What’s covered.

In the typical Government mindset of how to do things, another user said he couldn't find anything on Brain Scans and Cholesterol . The answer from Medicare just blew me away: \" In the meantime, to get information related to cholesterol, try searching for “cardiovascular disease screenings.” To get information related to brain scan, try searching for “diagnostic non-laboratory tests.” I have a Masters Degree and consider myself fairly smart. But it would never even occur to me to search on \"cardiovascular disease screenings\" to find out about cholesterol. This App was obviously written by a bunch of government techno nerds who have no connection with the reality of day to day living.

I appreciate that Medicare is trying to make an app to help us know what is covered and how often. However, I am surprised to see that the app was released at a somewhat early stage of development. Compared with the information available on the web site, this app is lacking much information, thus making its usefulness very limited. I will check back every now and then. If the functionality becomes more like the functionality of searching on the web site, this app has very good potential.

So, so, MANY more items needed in the database before this app can be truely useful. Nothing for \"biopsy\" or \"MRI\" (not even a \"scan\" or \"CAT\" or \"imaging\" reference)… not even anything more specific than simply \"surgery\". Why not? Why not a few cross-references too? OK, it's a good start… I do appreciate the effort… but please give us monthly database updates to REALLY give it value.

I really like this app. My mother just had a stroke so helpful having info on what Medicare covers like the section on DME for hospital beds, walkers and wheelchairs. Also helpful to read about long team care and skilled nursing facility coverage, and home health coverage. I went through the Browse All Items and Services section and read all info that applied to my needs. I like the information at the bottom of each topic Cost and What It Is. I'm happy Medicare covers more than I thought it did

I have not used this app yet. But one of the reviews was of concern for me. The person put in that cholesterol was put in and nothing came up. Your answer was to look it up under cardiovascular. The people using this app are mostly lay people and will use the common name. This app should be everyday people friendly!

Maxwell Crooks

Almost 4 months have gone by and this is STILL a pos! Maybe several million tax dollars will fix it.

Joshua Kulas

Collapses in the starting block. The search function is worthless. Can't find even common surgeries by name or anatomical location. The best to hope for is search on \"Surgery\" and get the comprehensive and informative result that \"Many medically necessary surgeries are covered.\" Absolutely brilliant...

Lelah Buckridge DVM

Great. First thing I searched was cholesterol and brain scan, found neither. Absolutely nothing. Already a POS app like most employees who cannot answer the simple questions I ask. Thought this would be smarter. Obviously not. Author/coder cannot even spell/grammar check info under install button.

Kendall Reynolds

looked up oral surgery, nothing, then more basic \"oral\". came up with \"defibrillator \" as one of the responses under cardiovascular, nothing to do with oral. having been a clinical engineer for 40 years your eyes would probably pop out if you used a defibrillator in your mouth.

I wanted to find out if my Ctscan was covered \u0026 how much was the copay. The site didn't recognize Ctscan. Then I tried to see about my MRI \u0026 it directed me to lab tests. Useless. Shouldn't even get 1 star. Will have to call to get answers.
