help pay for an injectable drug for osteoporosis and visits by a home health nurse to inject the drug if you meet these conditions:
- You’re a woman.
- You’re eligible for Part B and meet the criteria for Medicare home health services.
- You have a bone fracture that a doctor certifies is related to postmenopausal osteoporosis.
- Your doctor certifies that you’re unable to learn to give yourself the drug by injection and your family members and/or caregivers are unable and unwilling to give you the drug by injection.
You pay 20% of the
for the cost of the drug, and the Part B
applies. You pay nothing for the home health nurse visit to inject the drug.
