help pay for an osteoporosis injectable drug 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 or caregivers are unable and unwilling to give you the drug by injection.
Your costs in Original Medicare
Beginning April 2023, your copay amount can change depending upon your prescription drug’s price. In most cases, after you meet the Part B deductible , you pay 0% to 20% of the Medicare-approved amount for the cost of the drug. You pay nothing for the home health nurse visit to inject the drug.
