I am going to be taking a PSMA test. I am told that generally insurance covers the PET scan part of the test, but that you have to pay for the contrast agent out of your pocket.
I am new to Medicare. It is my understanding that if Medicare is paying for treatment, they will not permit that same provider to charge extra for anything. Does that mean that under Medicare, in order to get a PSMA test, I will need to find a provider that doesn't accept Medicare and then pay for the entire test myself?
