A government study shows that there are a number of screening and immunizations that are recommended for seniors, but both seniors and doctors are unaware they are covered by Medicare. Nine out of ten seniors visit a doctor once a year but don’t know that Medicare will cover immunizations for Influenza, Hepatitis B, and Pneumococcal, as well as screenings for cervical cancer (pap smear) , breast cancer (mammography) , vaginal cancer (pelvic exam) , colorectal cancer (fecal-occult blood test) , colorectal cancer (flexible sigmiodoscopy or colonoscopy) , osteoporosis (bone mass measurement) , prostate cancer (prostate specific antigen test and/or digital rectal examination) , and glaucoma.
