Get Screened for Prostate Cancer
If you’re a man 50 or older, Medicare covers tests to help find Prostate cancer early, when treatment works best.
Medicare covers a digital rectal exam and Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test once every 12 months.
All men with Medicare age 50 and older (coverage for this test begins the day after your 50th birthday).
Generally, you pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount for the digital rectal exam after the yearly Part B deductible. You pay nothing for the PSA test.
