Medicare & You: Women's Preventive Health

Uploaded by CMSHHSgov on 28.03.2012


Hi, I'm Pamela Gentry at the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services.
If you've got a minute, I've got some good news about Medicare.
Often women avoid or delay preventive care because of out-of-pocket cost.
Women have unique health concerns, including high rates of chronic disease,
which is why the healthcare law insures that women have access to important
preventive services at little or no cost.
Women with Medicare can take advantage of many of these services right now,
including an Annual Wellness Visit, bone mass measurement,
cervical cancer screenings, and mammograms.
Find out more about the women's health and other preventive services
covered by Medicare at or by calling 1-800-MEDICARE.
