Medicare Changes Preventative Policy

More than 200,000 Idahoans will now have access to preventative healthcare services. That means those covered by Medicare can now be screened for cardiovascular issues, diabetes, and breast cancer. Beginning in 2011, many of those services no longer have a deductible and don’t require the 20 percent co-insurance.
