Hepatitis C screening tests
Medicare covers a screening test one time if you meet one or more of these conditions:
- You’re at high risk because you use or have used illicit injection drugs.
- You had a blood transfusion before 1992.
- You were born between 1945-1965.
If you’re at high risk, Medicare covers yearly screenings.
You pay nothing for the screening test if your doctor or other qualified health care provider accepts
Medicare will only cover Hepatitis C screening tests if your primary care doctor or other primary care provider orders them.
