Q  What’s the difference between a covered and non-covered service?
A The differences between covered and non-covered services are essentially what they sound like – some are paid for by your insurance, while others are not. For example, Medicare patients may receive annual physical exams as part of a covered service; meaning Medicare will submit payment to your provider for that visit. Non-covered services vary based on insurance type, but the services that are not covered are ones you, as the patient, are responsible for paying on your own. For Medicare patients, these often include things like some long-term care stays, dentures and hearing aids.
