Preventative Care
Bone Density Osteoporosis 

Medicare covers bone mass measurements to see if you’re at risk for broken bones due to osteoporosis. Osteoporosis is a disease in which your bones become weak and brittle. In general, the lower your bone density, the higher your risk for a fracture.

Bone mass measurement results will help you and your doctor choose the best way to keep your bones strong..
 
Who’s covered?
 .
Bone mass measurements are covered for certain people with Medicare whose doctors say they’re at risk for osteoporosis, and who have one of these medical conditions:.

• A person with vertebral abnormalities as demonstrated by an X-ray
• A person getting (or expecting to get) steroid treatments
• A person with hyperparathyroidism
• A person taking an osteoporosis drug.
