Laboratory services (clinical)


Medicare Part B (Medical Insurance) covers medically necessary clinical diagnostic laboratory services that are ordered by your doctor or practitioner. Laboratory tests include certain blood tests, urinalysis, tests on tissue specimens, and some screening tests. They must be provided by a laboratory that meets Medicare requirements.

Who’s eligible?

All people with Medicare are covered.
