Did you know prostate cancer is the most common cancer in American men?
Help prevent prostate cancer from affecting you or the men in your life. If you’re a man who’s 50 or older, make sure you get screened for prostate cancer every 12 months.
Your Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers 2 tests to help find prostate cancer early, when treatment works best:
- Digital rectal exam—You pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount after the yearly Part B deductible.
- Prostate Specific Antigen (PSA) test—Free to all men with Medicare 50 and older (coverage for this test begins the day after your 50th birthday).
Early detection matters: get screened every 12 months.
