Help Address Heart Health Disparities

Medicare covers cardiovascular disease screening tests and intensive behavioral therapy for cardiovascular disease. Your patients pay nothing if you accept assignment. Find out when your patient is eligible for these services. If you need help, contact your eligibility service provider.
