Has anyone with a Medicare Advantage Plan been tested? I would be interested to know if you got more than just $51 covered. Thanks!

Medicare is paying $50.27 and that is all they will pay for this test.

Hi Daffodil,

Medicare paid for both the culture and serology for me and for someone else I know, but some others have said that that only paid about $60--so there is no clear answer. Mine was paid in December.

Best,
Sushi
