I thought I read somewhere that Medicare pays for a low-dose ctscan....or did I confuse that with an annual mammogram?

They pay for mine every year.

They pay for mine. 100% so long as you meet the criteria.



Patients must meet the following five criteria:

Be age 55-77 years of age
Have no signs or symptoms of lung cancer
Have a 30-pack years or greater history of tobacco smoking
Be current smokers or have quit smoking within the last 15 years
Have a written order for LDCT from a qualified health professional following a lung cancer screening
counseling that attests to shared decision-making having taken place before their first screening CT

That last one just means the doc talks to you.
