HIV screening


Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) screenings. Medicare covers this test once every 12 months or up to 3 times during a pregnancy.

Who’s eligible?

People with Medicare are covered if they:
• Are at increased risk for the virus
• Ask for the test
• Are pregnant

Your costs in Original Medicare

You pay nothing for the test if the doctor or other qualified health care provider accepts assignment, and the Part B deductible doesn’t apply, but you generally pay 20% of the Medicare-approved amount for the doctor’s visit.
