As people age, their chances of developing skin-related disorders increase. According to Stanford Health Care, as many as 40 to 50 percent of Americans over the age of 65 develop at least one skin cancer in their lifetime. Without early diagnosis and treatments, these skin conditions can become painful, disruptive, and influence quality of life. The good news is that Medicare covers medically necessary dermatology services to prevent, diagnose, and treat skin disorders.

Our resource helps guide seniors on the dermatology procedures covered by Medicare. We answer common questions about referral requirements to see a dermatologist and how to find a dermatologist that accepts Medicare.
