Physicians: Are You Treating Men?

The month of June has been recognized as Men’s Health Month and is recognized around the country with screenings, health fairs, and other health education and outreach activities. Men’s Health Month can heighten awareness for preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men.

Physicians can encourage men in your practice to seek screening services for early treatment for Men’s health diseases that may be preventable.  Men are not as apt to request appointments.  Please check out the Medicare Preventive Services chart at: https://www.cms.gov/Medicare/Prevention/PrevntionGenInfo/medicare-preventive-services/MPS-QuickReferenceChart-1.htmlExternal Website. While Prostate Cancer Screening is exclusive to men, there are many others that would apply.  This chart will help providers understand the preventive services available for Medicare coverage along with the billing and coverage requirements for each service.

This document was developed through the A/B Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC) Provider Outreach & Education (POE) Collaboration Team. This joint effort ensures consistent communication and education throughout the nation on a variety of topics and will assist the provider and physician community with information necessary to submit claims appropriately and receive proper payment in a timely manner.
